IP Australia updates major data resource

IP Australia’s ‘flagship’ open data resource, the Intellectual Property Government Open Data, or IPGOD, has been updated for 2018.

IPGOD, which includes more than 100 years of detailed intellectual property (IP) rights data, has been given a number of improvements to make it more beneficial.

Machine learning algorithms has been used to produce the 2018 tables, enabling the matching of IP rights to IP rights holders with more accuracy.

IP Australia will release IPGOD in two stages during 2018. The first stage, released this month, includes all of the tables previously available in IPGOD.

The second stage will be released in July, with more detail on IP applicants and agents.

“We hope that end users continue to contribute to our IPGOD data product and share knowledge on data issues,” read an IP Australia statement issued on 15 May.

“IPGOD is an open data product that has been shaped by public feedback and we welcome your contributions to guide future improvements.

“We’re excited by the changes and improvements to IPGOD, and are continually looking for new ways to add value to the product and improve the end user’s experience.”
