Data verification refers to any service or assignment where a given list of data entries is reviewed and cross-verified. For instance, a patent practitioner who has a list of USPTO patents, reviews and cross-checks the data on the USPTO websites during the process of data verification. This step is to determine that all entries are recorded/updated properly.
Patent data verification is important to determine the accuracy of data during the patent filing process. Furthermore, the process can also be used as a step in strategizing IP.
