Legal data page

Post by look4answer » Mon Oct 05, 2015 7:34 pm

Hi,

I have a quick question about legal data page. It used to be that a direct link to OPS legal data is ended with 'legal'. For example, a link to US8444198 legal information would be -- http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/fa ... 8.B2/legal . Just today, an error display an error "The request could not be processed. Please try again later" with Server.DomainAccess code. Could anyone please direct me to the right legal info page given a patent number?

Thank you,

Err, never mind. Just found out that the server has changed the link address to be similar to the bibliographic page...

Hmm... I am sorry again. The info I got from the other link isn't legal data. If anyone could please guide me to the a URL of patent family legal data?

Thank you.

Hi,

I am not sure if I get your problem - when I click on your link I get Family service with Legal constituent.

Can you be more specific with your issue, please?

Regards,
OPS support

Hi OPS Support,

Thank you for your reply. It seems that it fixed itself. I am guessing the server was rebooting or something. Anyway, thank you again.

Hi OPS Support,

I have to revive this thread due to a different error but the same purpose of question. Since last Friday, it seems that I could not retrieve legal data again. For example, when I go to http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/fa ... 4.B1/legal , what I get is as follows:

<fault><code>SERVER.EntityNotFound</code><message>No results found</message></fault>

Many of patents I tried came up with the similar message. Does this mean the URL has changed to something else? If so, could you please guide me to the right direction.

Thank you,
Taywin
