FYI: Errors in abstract of AU documents

Post by martien » Sun May 31, 2020 10:56 pm

Hi,

Today I found document errors in some AU documents, e.g. AU2018347186A1
A part of the abstract seems to be rubbish, not seen on available orig. documents.
(Tested also on Espacenet)

Regards,
Martien

Hi,

The abstract of a WO was loaded instead and is now visible.

Dear Vesna,

I'm not sure, if you described the solution for one or all of the AU-documents.
For the mentioned case it works.
However, there still are a lot of cases with the same problem.
ab="1111111111111*" gives 329 results with the "111111.." rubbish.
Espacenet even shows 1763.
ab="*1111111111111*" has even more (not Espacenet).
In some cases it is a binary number in the description (=ok), in other (pn=SG11201902091YA)
it is a mix of other data from a patent.
I now have seen the problem in AU en SG documents.

Regards,

Martien

I know, this was no new issue for us, but its bigger issue, so they need far more time to get everything
