Searching using Opponent name
Posted: Tue Jul 23, 2019 8:57 pm
In the old Espacenet, it was possible to find opposed patents by entering the opponent's name or even just 01.
I have not found this feature in the new Espacenet and hope that you can indicate where to find it.
Thank you !

Thank you for your question. This feature is actually available in the European Patent Register.
Whereas Espacenet is currently not meant to search for legal or procedural related matters, the EPO developed Global Patent Index (www.epo.org/gpi
), which is an advanced patent search tool that allows such type of search worldwide. It is a subscription-based product, but if you are interested in this topic, it is possible to test it for free.
Don't hesitate to come back to us, should you have further questions.
