Firms focused on this space include Thinknum, 1010data, and Dataminr.

According to Neudata’s research, intangible assets such as IP have risen from representing 20 percent of a company’s value 40 years ago to 85 percent today. Trademarks protect that value, but because they must be legally registered, they represent a public source of data about a company’s potential revenues and strategic plans."
