Database contents

The Dutch Database Patent Licenses contains patents for which the patent owners are willing to provide licenses. The database is updated daily, so the available patents may change from day to day.

The Dutch Database Patent Licenses only contains patents that are valid in the Dutch territories. The Netherlands Patent Office, a department of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, administrates and updates the data in the Dutch Database Patent Licenses. The official Netherlands Patent Register provides the basis for this data.

The data in the Dutch Database Patent Licenses are also available as an open database, which entails that the user is free to share and edit the data it contains. See the ‘Open data’ page for more information.
