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,
Gerben

(approximate) truncatedFamily limits

Dear OPS team, I might have overlooked it, but in the manual I have only found some general indication for truncated families on page 88. In situations when the requested family is very large (several hundred members), all of the members cannot be included in the response due to technical reasons. T...

Re: New OPS terms of use and Fair use charter from 2018 on

Dear OPS support, The current version of the manual (january 2018 version) still reports 2.5G as current max week volume on page 39. 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 It would be nice if the manual would be adjusted to report this, but it will be outdated again with...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

This makes sense, as I wrote earlier today "It probably is a very simple small mistake we make".

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

Sorry Rolf, I have not yet found a solution and have not received any response to this message except yours. The issue still blocks me from using the registered entrance into the OPS, so we simply continue to use the unregistered access to the OPS. I would like to see this solved because: 1) I'm cur...

Re: How to be in mailing list

The link to the feed is present in http://www.epo.org/searching/free/ops.html . Downtime for OPS and related information services of the EPO are announced in this ...

I managed to create a token and store its data locally using the following functions: function read_token ($tokenname) { // read token fi...
