Re: What has changed in new Espacenet

There appears to be a not reported change as well.

In the new espacenet it appears that you ...

Re: Weblink from any API

You're correct Vesna, it links to the old interface indeed. Problem with the new interface is that the url's in the new interface contain the family number in addition to the publication number ( https://worldwide.espacenet.com/patent/search/family/031987238/publication/EP1419886A1?q=EP1419886 ).

Re: Retrieve the date of grant of a European patent

I always use the publication date of the B1 as the grant date. I never checked if there is a formal notice in the legal status.
