Wrong claim starting page for US numbers

Post by Romina Mossi » Wed Jan 08, 2020 9:45 am

Hi!
There is an error in the indication of the starting page for claims in US patents.
For example for US2006206947 A1: the Rest answer indicates the claims starting at page 28 <ops:document-section name="CLAIMS" start-page="28"/>.
In fact it is 23.

The same error is e.g. for patents
US20060206947
US20060216749
US20060223096
US20060228342
US20060257359
US20060257972
US20060258007
US20060264609
US20060265773
US20060292117
US20070003518

Thank you in advance for your answer

Thank you!
Do you have news, if the problem has been corrected? It was a general problem, not only of the numbers I gave you.
Thank you!

Dear Romina,

Yes, this is bigger problem, it effects documents between 2001-2008 and the team in charge is reloading those as we speak, starting from oldest to the latest. But it will take a wile, its quite an extensive data set as you know.

Hi,

The issue was corrected a wile ago, not sure exactly which documents were wrongly numbered then but that was done.

I didn't re-check you entire list, but just at looking at first document, I see correct info in OPS. There are 28 pages in that PDF and claims start on page 27. The number 23 on the document itself has no bearing to this because 1-4 pages with images are starting after biblio page and they Interrupt the count of pages, so 23+4 is 27.
