About



Welcome to IPWatchdog.com

IPWatchdog,Inc., a Delaware Corporation, owns, operates and publishes IPWatchdog.com. IPWatchdog.com is the leading Intellectual Property Law publication on the Internet.

After being recognized as one of the top 100 legal blogs by the American Bar Association for 5 years in a row (ranking #1 in 2010, 2012 and 2013), in January 2014 we were inducted into the ABA Blawg Hall of Fame and retired from annual consideration having achieved placement in the Hall of Fame. Since that time, IPWatchdog.com has grown by leaps and bounds, and today is the premiere online journal in the intellectual property space.

Our focus is on the business, substance, policy, and law of patents, technology and innovation. We also write about intellectual property more generally, and wherever possible cover copyrights and trademarks.

We strive to provide information and detailed analysis with magazine and industry journal length articles and op-ed pieces. Today IPWatchdog is recognized as one of the leading sources for news and information in the patent and innovation industries.
