MaxVal's Litigation Databank to be used by GMU's Center for Study of Public Choice

​The MaxVal Group today announces that it is providing detailed case level data from its Patent Litigation Databank to George Mason University’s Center for Study of Public Choice. MaxVal’s comprehensive database contains over 46,000 patent litigation cases from the US District Court, International Trade Commission and US Court of Appeals.  The Center for Study of Public Choice will use the data in its research on the relationship between Patents and Innovation.

We are pleased to be working with MaxVal.”
