Trademark Case Files Dataset

The Trademark Case Files Dataset contains detailed information on 8.6 million trademark applications filed with or registrations issued by the USPTO between January 1870 and January 2017. It is derived from the USPTO main database for administering trademarks and includes data on mark characteristics, prosecution events, ownership, classification, third-party oppositions, and renewal history.

A document describing these data is available here: "The USPTO Trademark Case Files Dataset: Descriptions, Lessons, and Insights."
