Hi, For only abstract, yes, we have such option - use only abstract constituent as in the image attached here example.PNG Depending on the jurisdiction, abstract can be either on laid open (in most cases) or on both publication steps, or even at times on granted publications only, this is why I am s...

Re: OPS Throttling-Control Retry-After

Hi, I cannot confirm that now because I didn't have a chance to see your log but it looks like you went over your quota, but I don't see if it was daily quota (450 MB/day) or you were over the allowed weekly quota (4,5 GB if you have free of charge). If you want more exact information then send me y...

Re: Drawings resolution

Dear Jpat, Espacenet is using newer version of images backend at the moment, but this will at some point be aligned with the new version of OPS. At the moment, you can only get data as currently available in OPS. I had a look at both and the version from OPS is still very good, although not as great...

Re: Firstpage missing

Hi, First page image is a special product when we extract and then assign 1 representative drawing as a "first page image" in a simple patent family if the family has WO, AT, FR, DE, GB , EP , CA or US family member. KR document is therefore never a publication with a First page image but if it has ...

Re: Error on getting fullimage

Hi, Actually, I was assuming you are asking about characted-coded full text in XML and not PDF's (I am not sure why... :-)) . But that's not a problem, its good to explain PDF's too: A0 is not a document, A0 is a page saying that EP A1 does not exists as full text, but that you have to take WO inste...

Re: Error on getting fullimage

Hi Gerald, Your two cases are un-published EURO PCT's (have one of the EP procedural languages already so they won't be translated and published as full text of that A1 biblio - WO full text apply ), their full text is only retrievable by using WO publication number and querying WO full text. It wor...

Re: Wrong response format error in published-data request

Hi, Actually, the source is the same but I didn't display the result once I saw 200 successful status. I've asked colleagues on Friday already to look at it, I will provide you with an update once I get more info from them. Thank you for reporting this and let me now if you get more Regards, Vesna f...
