description: The IPRoduct project seeks to link innovative goods to the patents upon which they are based. By directly linking products to patents, this project tracks innovation to the point where it meets consumers, the true commercial end point of investments in Science & Technology. The output of the project is a database of linked product-patent pairs that is made publicly available. The data is sourced from virtual patent marking web pages. Everyone has seen the ‘patent pending’ notice on some products. Sometimes, manufacturers print the actual patent numbers on products -- ‘physical patent marking'. The complete database is composed of 800 companies, 1447 web pages, 24463 products, 19815 U.S. patents and 151176 relationships.
