Re: Annual Amount of Pat Family Applications by Country of O

Hi deef, You asked for feedback, so here are my thoughts. To be most useful, I am trying to be picky. DOCDB families (aka simple families) are usually used for counting inventions. All applications of the same DOCDB family can be regarded as equivalent. In contrast the broader INPADOC family (aka ex...

Re: Searching for help concerning PATSTAT query

Hi, When you do a JOIN, then you get 1 record for each combination of joined tables which fulfil the JOIN conditions (e. g. "ON a.appln_id = pa.appln_id"). As an example: You are joining applications and persons (e. g. applicants) and a specific application has 5 persons associated, you will retriev...

Re: Searching for help concerning PATSTAT query

To include worldwide regional / national filings, just remove " appln_auth = 'EP' " in your query. To also include international filings (= PCT filings at WIPO), remove " appln_kind = 'A' ". To better understand what a query does and to use SQL effectively, I suggest to read the SQL self-study cours...

Re: Searching for help concerning PATSTAT query

Hi Constance,

Just add "and granted = 1" to the WHERE clause of your query.
Look up attribute GRANTED in the Data Catalog for more details.

Best regards,

Re: NPL references cited in patent literature

Dear Joachim, Thanks for the specific example, which was publication US 7067501 B2. In short: PATSTAT gets its data more or less indirectly from the US office. I have no reason to believe that information gets lost on the way because the 6 NPLs listed by the applicant in the US form "Information Dis...

Re: NPL references cited in patent literature

Dear Joachim, Actually, your assumption is not correct. NPLs can be cited in any phase of the patent procedure. Just check attribute CITN_ORIGIN in table TLS212_CITATION. select citn_origin, count(*) as freq from tls212_citation where cited_npl_publn_id > 0 group by citn_origin order by freq desc Th...

Re: Querying utility models in France

Dear Carmen, Your approach comes close. Unfortunately it does not work for France, because for FR there is no distinction in the type of application APPLN_KIND between patents and utility models. However, utility models can be identified by the kind of publications that are published. In the “Kind c...

Re: Help with SQL query_caunt applications per Country

I think there are two major issues in what you do: Firstly, your queries do not return applications , but records as defined in your query. In your queries you join the application table with TLS207, which has a record for every person (applicant or inventor) of an application. Consequently, if an a...

Re: representative document of patent family

Hi Björn, No, there is no definition of a "representative publication" in PATSTAT. But you can define your own representative, using your own rules. These rules may be similar to the ones in Espacenet or totally different, whatever best suits your needs. I would do it like this: Add 2 columns to the...
