Retrieving Claims of Non-EP Patents

Post by srikanta » Tue Jul 05, 2016 2:31 pm

How can I retrieve claims of Non-EP Patents e.g. US granted patents?

When i am using "http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... 405/claims" i.e. by replacing EP number with US granted number, below results are coming:

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
<fault xmlns="http://ops.epo.org">
<code>CLIENT.InvalidCountryCode</code>

Hi,

You can't get US claims or descriptions via OPS. See OPS FAQ for more info: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... ml#faq-74

Kind regards,

Hi,

I have the same problem. I get the claims with https://worldwide.espacenet.com/?locale=de_EP.
But the claims information should be gettable via OPS. The database should be the same!?

Does anyone know the solution (for other "countries" than EP, WO, CA) ?

Best regards,
Stefan

Hi

You can only get claims and description of data that we are allowed to distribute to the third party and those are character-coded full text collections from AT, CH, ES, GB, FR, EP and WO.
Other collections are only available via Espacenet for manual searching and as a basis for machine translation. This data is not available for you to download and load into your search engine or database. We don’t have a solution for you, you can only see if you get other collections in the same format from respective patent offices. Many of them offer their own web services, similar to EPO’s OPS

Regards,
OPS support
