Abstract : This paper considers the problem of recognizing legal en-tities in visual contents in a similar way to named-entity recognizers for text documents. Whereas previous works were restricted to the recognition of a few tens of logotypes, we generalize the problem to the recognition of thousands of legal persons, each being modeled by a rich corporate identity automatically built from web images. We intro-duce a new geometrically-consistent instance-based classifi-cation method that is shown to outperform state-of-the-art techniques on several challenging datasets while being much more scalable. Further experiments performed on an au-tomatic web crawl of 5,824 legal entities demonstrates the scalability of the approach.
