Re: Weblink from any API

You're correct Vesna, it links to the old interface indeed. Problem with the new interface is that the url's in the new interface contain the family number in addition to the publication number ( https://worldwide.espacenet.com/patent/search/family/031987238/publication/EP1419886A1?q=EP1419886 ).

Re: Weblink from any API

After retreiving the bibliographic information it is easy to create a link to espacenet. The structure of an espacenet url is: http://worldwide.espacenet.com/publicationDetails/biblio?locale=en_EP&DB=&FT=D&CC=[2 digit country code]&NR=[pub num & kind code]&KC=[kind code] . for EP1234567B1 this would...

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,
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 It would be nice if the manual would be adjusted to report this, but it will be outdated again with...
