Intellectual Property at the Firm-Level in the UK: The Oxford Firm-Level Intellectual Property Database
AbstractThis paper provides an overview of a new database that contains intellectual property data - in the form of patents and trademarks - for the population of firms registered in the UK.� The paper discusses the principal challenges involved in the construction of this integrated database and provides an explanation of the approach taken to address these issues.� We employ the integrated dataset to provide descriptive evidence on the firm-level use of intellectual property - including patents and trademarks - in the UK over the period 2000-2007.
