The litigation data in Cipher comes from two trusted sources: Maxval and RPx.

Cipher contains information on US, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, China and Japan litigation. 

The data, curated and supplied by MaxVal, is a comprehensive collection of cases obtained from multiple sources, including PACER. It covers patent litigations filed since 1980, including over 120,000+ cases

Cipher also shows whether litigation involves a non-practicing entity (NPE or “patent troll”) or an operational company. This information, which complements MaxVal’s comprehensive litigation dataset, is provided by RPX.
