The Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghouse (IPLC), created by the Stanford Program in Law, Science and Technology in collaboration with the Stanford Department of Computer Science and launched in December 2008, provides access to more than 100,000 intellectual property cases.[1] The IP cases available in the IPLC cover:[1]

  • Patent infringement
  • Manifest copyright
  • Manifest trademark
  • Manifest antitrust
  • Certain trade secret lawsuits filed in the U.S. District Court from January 1, 2000 to the present

The database is hosted by Lex Machina Inc. and is free for academicians, public interest researchers, judges, policymakers, and the media.[1] Users must first email Lex Machina at access@lexmachina.com from their organizational e-mail and provide their name, affiliation, background information, and their anticipated use of the IPLC service before they receive free access to the IPLC.[2]
