(note: the database was previously known as the OEIDD Open Essential IPR Disclosure Database)
The OEIDD database provides a full overview of all disclosed IPR at setting organizations world-wide. Based on the archives of thirteen major SSOs as of March 2011, the disclosure data is cleaned, harmonized, and all disclosed USPTO or EPO patents or patent applications are matched against patent identities in the PATSTAT database. Overall, the database contains 46,906 disclosed patents, patent applications or blankets, from 969 different firms, with 14057 USPTO or EPO patents or patent applications identified in PATSTAT, belonging to 4814 different INPADOC patent families and 5337 different DOCDB patent families.
Some of the basics
- Each record contains a single disclosed IPR, or a blanket statement, to a specific SSO, and to a specific standard (subject to the definition of the latter at the SSO)
- A disclosure event refers to one or more IPR discloses from a given firm to a given SSO on a given data. A disclosure event may include multiple patents and/or blankets, re3fering to one or more standards. While some SSO archives are organized around disclosure events and other are not, our disclosure events are constructed from the data in a uniform way.
- The database has two tables. The first one contains all the disclosures. The second one contains detailed patent information from PATSTAT for each individual patent application ('appl_id') present in our database. This data is on the basis of the PATSTAT April 2014 version.
