General Information
IP Data Corporation is a privately held Class C corporation. We incorporated in 1998 in Alexandria, Virginia.  Early in 2003 we moved to Edgewater Florida where the corporation was officially domesticated in the state.  Our board of directors, also stockholders, assist with recommendations concerning the direction of our business, our policies and our products.  However, most of our direction comes from our clients needs and recommendations, as should most service and information oriented companies. We have affiliates, associates and independent contractors in Alexandria and Arlington, VA that handle necessary interface requirements with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, the Department of Commerce and the Library of Congress.

Two of our board members and one of the officers of our corporation have over 60 combined years of management experience in the intellectual property document delivery industry, both in print and popular electronic formats via the Internet.  Combining this experience with our extensive Internet and software engineering experience provides us with a a sharp competitive edge in several businesses centered around intellectual property electronic document and book delivery, specialized Internet product placement and delivery, and automated delivery of subscriptions to very large document inventories that grow by ten to forty thousand publications each week. 

We combine our knowledge of intellectual property with our software engineering and development capabilities to produce products and services for companies and law firms that deal with U.S. and non-US patent data, as well as the laws, rules and regulations governing intellectual property. We also  consult and assist with Internet delivery of documents and Internet placement of web sites selling these products and related services.  We continue to improve current products, publication, and our IP data inventory as well as design new products and systems to make your  job easier, more enjoyable, and more profitable.

Basic Business Policies
The most important people in our business are our clients. More than once we've heard the question "Whatever happened to good customer service?"  Quite frankly, you'll find it right here at IP Data Corporation.  Providing good customer service is no accident. It requires training and the right employees to make it work properly. It is our choice that people answer our phones, instead of  machines. If you call and a machine answers, I assure you that it is either after hours, or that we are very busy. I can also assure you that it won't happen very often. 

If you have a problem with our services or any of our products, please let us know and we will take steps to correct the issue immediately. If a product or service we provide does not meet our advertised standards, or industry standards that you have come to expect, or you find a problem with a publication or any product or service we offer, we will solve the problem to your satisfaction, or we will cheerfully and promptly refund your money.  It indicates something important to us that a good sized portion of our new business is by "word of mouth." 

We are also "sticklers" for good and proper business ethics. Doing the right thing is not always the most profitable thing in the short term, but we find that over the long haul, it is always better for the strength and growth of our company (and we sleep better, too).

We do not, nor will we at any time in the future, out-source any of our processes, printing, product development or support functions outside of the United States. This decision is based on our desire to provide you with the very best products and services, and we feel that it is best accomplished with direct hands-on management which is difficult to carry out half way around the world, and we also feel that the people that service your needs should be a part of, and responsible for, the company with which you do business.

The Past & Future
IP Data Corporation started out as Sensory Publishing, Inc. in 1998 publishing technical, non-fiction and fiction titles in both print and leading edge electronic formats along with designing our own custom software to process and format the text and images for print publishing, as well as the "bleeding edge" portable electronic reader displays. We originally placed only a minor emphasis on government publications, but in 2002 we shifted all of our resources into an array of intellectual property products and custom software to handle the management, searching, custom image display and rapid delivery of U.S. patent data and IP publications. 

We moved from general electronic publishing to intellectual property related electronic and print publishing after one of our largest clients contracted us to design a very large data management and delivery system for US patent data.  Building on the additional skills and knowledge gained from that project, we shifted our primary focus on data management and delivery systems for a much wider range of IP related products and targeted sales and marketing these products via the Internet. We listen closely to our clients and it helps us immensely. As of this writing, our IP client list is well over 600 law firms and corporations, and the list continues to grow at a decent pace.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important information. As always, if you have questions or comments about our policies, services or products, please call us at 800-832-2823. We will be very happy to speak with you.
