Removal of Pre-IPC 8 data fields streamlines displays in USPATFULL, USPAT2, and USPATOLD

January  19, 2011 - 

 

USPATFULL, USPAT2, and USPATOLD displays have been streamlined through the removal of Pre-IPC 8 fields (ICM, ICS, ICA, and ICI) from the following pre-defined display formats:

  • STD / STD.EX / ISTD
  • ALL / IALL / DALL
  • MAX / MAX.EX / IMAX / IMAX.EX / DMAX
  • IND
  • SCAN

Note: You can still use these Pre-IPC 8 fields when searching and/or custom-displaying information from Pre-IPC 8 patents (those published in 2005 and earlier).

Similar changes have been implemented recently in CA/CAplus, MARPAT, and CASREACT. For additional information on the Pre-IPC 8 reform, visit
