CHICAGO, December 2, 2021 ( – With decades of combined experience as premier IP data providers, ktMINE and Lighthouse IP have entered into a partnership to simplify data access based on unique customer needs to address gaps that exist with the traditional one-size-fits-all model.

“Today, companies want a full picture of what is taking place across the entire IP landscape,” says Willem Geert Lagemaat, Lighthouse IP Founder. “Companies previously thought they were getting a look at the big picture through one dataset and now companies realize that the big picture includes expanding the data to underlying transactions and connections from other IP data sources, including litigation and licensing information.”

Both companies understand that with the value of IP continuing to rise, the challenge for corporations, law firms, universities, and other industries will be to bring the IP data that they need into their organizations.

At the center of the partnership is ktMINE’s API and Data Delivery offering that is powered by:

  • 140 Million Bibliographic Records
  • 159 Authorities
  • 120 Million Patent Images
  • 80 Authorities of Full-Text Documents
  • 124 Million English Machine-Translated Documents

“Lighthouse IP provides unmatched data coverage through their ability to source and translate valuable IP data from around the world,” says Michael Taylor, ktMINE CEO. “Combining the largest collection of patent data in the world with ktMINE’s licensing, litigation, transactional, and corporate tree datasets creates a new level of insight that did not exist before. Now it does, by leveraging the latest technologies and our high-tech API which dramatically shortens the time from concept to production for our customers.”
