New version database of Disclosed Standard Essential Patents

Postby RudiBekkers on Wed Feb 24, 2016 3:20 pm

Dear all,

A while ago, I informed you about the public availability of the Disclosed Standard Essential Patents (dSEP) database (see earlier forum post below).

I am pleased to inform you that an updated version is now available. We have added the business model and the country or origin of the patent owners. This new data covers over 97% of all the disclosure events, and over 97% of all the identified disclosed patents.

Again, the data is freely available and can be found at

Best regards,
Rudi Bekkers, Christian Catalini, Arianna Martinelli, Timothy Simcoe, and Cesare Righi

*************** EARLIER FORUM POST *****
Dear all,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the availability of the Disclosed Standard Essential Patents (dSEP) database.

This database is the result of a combined effort of several European and US researchers to collect, clean and harmonise disclosed SEPs data at thirteen major standard setting organisations (including ETSI, ITU, IEEE, ISO, and more).

All identified patents issued by the EPO or the USPTO are accompanied by a PATSTAT APPL_ID number.

The full database, as well as a codebook, are available at the following location:

An earlier version of this database was first introduced at an event of the National Bureau of Economic Research:

Bekkers, R., Catalini, C., Martinelli, A., & Simcoe, T. Intellectual Property Disclosure in Standards Development. Paper at the NBER conference on Standards, Patents & Innovation, Tucson (AZ), January 20 and 21, 2012, available at

Best regards,
Rudi Bekkers
