Patents with incorrect assignee info

Hi,

I came across many patents incorrectly assigned to "Iowa State University Research Foundation, Inc." while looking for the patents from Tennessee. For instance, a search of patent ID "10010516" brings "Iowa State University Research Foundation, Inc." as assignee (https://datatool.patentsview.org/#detail/patent/10010516). That patent was filed by the University of Tennessee, as you can see from the USPTO webpage or Google Patents (https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/bd/27/54/23dfec026536e6/US10010516.pdf). My search shows that more than 600 patents were assigned to "Iowa State University Research Foundation, Inc." located in various Tennessee cities.

Hello, thank you for…

Hello, thank you for contacting our team about the discrepancy you found. While we can make edits to the data directly, the cause of the discrepancy is rooted in the disambiguation algorithm and is unlikely to truly resolve until further advancements in these algorithms have been made. 

Best,
