Be a Patent Legal Status Search Expert!

I admit that the title of this post is a bit optimistic, given that I am far from a patent legal status expert myself, even after years of wading through the topic!  But I do have a secret weapon that often saves me from appearing totally clueless – the European Patent Office (EPO)’s Statistics, Coverage and Codes documentation pages.

In this post I’ll discuss a small fraction of the useful content available on the “Useful tables and statistics, codes and coverage” pages on www.epo.org. These pages offer in-depth documentation of common patent bibliographic sources that are probably used by your commercial search provider. Read on to learn how these pages can save your bacon someday.

An Easier Way to Search Patent Reexam Data: Patent Savant

USPTO’s PAIR provides invaluable status information for US patent documents, but accessing this information can be tedious and frustrating due to PAIR’s inconvenient user interface.  Users must continually enter reCAPTCHA data to access the search form, very limited search options are available through the search form, and the portal will time out on you after a few minutes of inactivity.  Wouldn’t it be nice to find an alternative to PAIR for searching US patent status data?

Now there is an alternative, at least for US patent reexamination records.  Patent Savant, a web portal created by Patent Savant LLC, allows users to access patent reexam data for free through a much more user-friendly interface than PAIR, and subscribing users can access broader search options, alerts, and annotation tools.

After the jump, learn how to search US patent reexam data for free on Patent Savant!
