Thomson Delphion Adds Corporate Hierarchy Data

Thomson Delphion announced that through an extension of its partnership with CHI Research, Inc., Delphion has added European corporate hierarchy data to its existing U.S. data. The company says this creates the only resource where this important information can be leveraged across patent collections. As a result of this enhancement, the Delphion coverage of corporate hierarchy data now includes the top 1,900 patent holders representing 45,000 separate entities.

Delphion leverages CHI Research's corporate hierarchy in two of its most popular features—Corporate Tree and Snapshot. Corporate Tree helps customers find U.S. and European patents and applications by assignee name by helping end the confusion caused by mergers and acquisitions and the many different ways an assignee's name can be represented on a patent document. Snapshot summarizes key elements of patent data and quickly creates easy-to-understand bar charts. Using corporate hierarchy data further qualified as Unified Company, Parent Company, or Ultimate Company, summaries can easily be created by normalized corporate names enabling more meaningful assignee analysis.
