Trademark Case Files Dataset

The Trademark Case Files Dataset contains detailed information on 10.1 million trademark applications filed with or registrations issued by the USPTO between January 1870 and January 2020. It is derived from the USPTO main database for administering trademarks and includes data on mark characteristics, prosecution events, ownership, classification, third-party oppositions, and renewal history.

* Note: the 2014 and 2016 DTA files have been created using the Stata-13 format. Long string values are stored using the new strL variable type. Consequently, the length variables for long strings are no longer required.

** Note: the 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2019 DTA files have been created using the Stata-14 format. Long string values are stored using the new strL variable type. Consequently, the length variables for long strings are no longer required.

^ Note: Serial numbers without a filing date were excluded from the 2018 update. To obtain data on the excluded serial numbers use a prior version of the dataset and filter based on a missing filing date.
