Data Insights

User-generated products reveal valuable information about how fans interact with, and consume, brand intellectual property. Source3 identifies, catalogs and analyzes brand IP in fan products across marketplaces, categories, and territories. We do all the of the work, delivering data insights to support any business strategy with no set-up or lengthy integration.


Content Recognition

Source3 can identify brand IP in any product for sale online. From obvious (corporate logos) to granular (blasters + light sabers), we provide actionable intelligence for brands, marketplaces, retailers and makers. Our proprietary combination of image-recognition, data-matching and QA is fast, inexpensive and highly accurate.

IP Mapping

Source3 has cataloged and connected the brand IP upon which the consumer product licensing industry is based. Brand properties are organized by owner, franchise and industry vertical, providing for easy navigation and robust inter- and intra-brand linkages. This granular database powers Source3’s IP recognition and data insights engine and provides the data set for machine learning improvements in automated visual recognition.
