Intellectual Property Government Open Data (IPGOD) 2021

IPGOD—Intellectual Property Government Open Data—is a publicly available data set that provides access to over 100 years of information from IP Australia on IP rights applications. By providing a ‘one-stop shop’ for administrative data, it allows you to research the classification of IP rights, linkages between Australian and international IP rights, and the history of IP transfers and exchanges across time.

IPGOD covers each of the four types of IP rights administered by IP Australia (patents, trade marks, designs and plant breeder’s rights) and captures the application process and its results. This includes the type of IP right applied for, key dates and events, and the names of applicants, their agents and other associated parties. It also contains additional information, such as grouped/harmonised names for parties, and their Australian Business Numbers (ABNs) where available.

IPGOD was first released in 2014 and is updated annually.
