Is there a way to contact patent owners?

Post by Raseny » Thu Jan 10, 2019 6:59 pm

Dear all,
I am gathering information about an investigational product. I am planning to scan all patented products and write a review.
I believe citing would not be enough and I would need to contact all the patent owners for this. Is there a way to do this through Espace? I was not able to find most of the owners’ contact details on the internet search engines.
Thank you very much

Hi,

We, just like other EU-based data providers, do not offer much of the inventors data in our products because of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): https://eugdpr.org/ and https://ec.europa.eu/commission/priorit ... n-rules_en that is in place since 2018.
