Re: Missing claims and description data on case

Hi, There should indeed be claims/description for WO publication available via OPS. I have reported that back to colleagues and they will fix that asap. EP A in this case would not have any claims/description in OPS because we don't re-publish such WO as EP due to Article 153/3 EPC: "The internation...

Re: how i convert docdb/epodoc application number to original USPTO version?

Hi, Numbering service is not very stable especially for US or PCT original formats so I would not recommend the use in that case. We offer DOCDB rules as a table (2 tables: Publication and Application/Priority) here: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-patents/data/coverage/regular.html As far as orig...

Re: No results found due to inconsistent publication IDs?

Hi, The difference between a webservice like OPS and a search tool like Espacenet is that search tools are set to use different business rules that allow you to find documents even if your number is not exactly correct (+ or - 0, with fuzzy search etc for example). OPS cannot do that because OPS is ...

Re: orignal number format missing in Priority Number

Hi,

Re: orignal number format missing in Priority Number

Hi, After extensive analysis was done by colleagues in charge of data they came to the conclusion that this data format was not regularly delivered to us by WIPO and therefore we cannot offer it for all WO publications. Unfortunately, we won't be able to do anything about your request Regards, Vesna

Re: Retrieval of US2020093529A1 with OPS, no results found

Hi, You didn't do anything wrong. The document was only propagated into the database that feeds New Espacenet but not into the one that feeds Classic Espacenet/OPS. I've asked colleagues to re-trigger it for both databases and I think you will be able to see it tomorrow in OPS and Classic. You forma...
