Launched in October of 1999, has been a trusted resource on intellectual property for tens of millions of unique visitors for over 2 decades. Recognized as one of the leading sources for news, information, analysis and commentary in the patent and innovation industries, we also offer growing coverage of matters relating to trade secrets, copyrights and trademarks. Over the years, has grown into the largest online intellectual property publication in the world.

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. Since that time, has grown by leaps and bounds. In 2021 IPWatchdog brought in 2,983,693 users, which accounted for 3,400,797 sessions and 6,398,863 pageviews, making the largest online intellectual property publication in the world.

IPWatchdog has been offering a sponsored Weekly Webinar Series, that are free for attendees. Our webinar audience is quite large compared to most other industry webinars, typically attracting between 350 to 700 registrants per webinar, depending on the topic. We also post all of our past webinars on a gated Past Webinar Page for those who would like to watch a past webinar they have missed.

Beginning in 2018 we launched the IPWatchdog Institute, offering courses, seminars, and training for intellectual property professionals at all levels of their careers. The two flagship offerings of the IPWatchdog Institute are the Patent Masters™ programs and Patent Practice Training.  The Patent Masters™ programs are a high-level, interactive, limited enrollment, off-the-record seminar for attorneys and executives interested in an in-depth exploration of topical legal issues facing those that prosecute, litigate, license and monetize patents. Discussions are led by top thought leaders in the industry. Patent Practice Training is a course that offers those who have recently passed the patent bar a bridge between obtaining a license and effectively representing clients and prosecuting patent applications.
