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.

Re: (approximate) truncatedFamily limits

Thanks for the information, One thing is not clear to me, it is the cut-off after 1300 lines of information. Does this refer to the entire xml result or to the legal status information only? If it refers to the entire result, it cannot contain up to 700 publications in the familylist. One entry cont...

Re: EPO begins publishing linked open data

Dear team,

It seems as if the link to the user guide in http://www.epo.org/searching-for-patent ... html#tab-1 is wrong. Clicking the link to the user guide opens a new tab, but does not seem to be able to actually download the .pdf file.

Regards,

According to this announcement (october 2017), this should be 3.5G. It would be nice if the manual would be adjusted to report this, but it will be outdated again with...

Bulk retrieval limit definition / legal data download

Dear OPS team, I have a question regarding the definition of the bulk retrieval limit on page 52 of ops_v3.2_documentation_-_version_1.3.6_en.pdf . It states: Note, the bulk retrieval is limited to 100 references. Do I have to interpret this as I can submit 100 references in the request, or as I hav...

Re: php curl oauth, i do not manage to get data out

Adding /biblio at the end makes it work.

Re: php curl oauth, i do not manage to get data out

This makes sense, as I wrote earlier today "It probably is a very simple small mistake we make".
Thanks for pointing this out, I will try this tip later this week.
