INPADOC: Coverage of German Patent Data Resumed, Enhanced Legal Status

The coverage of German bibliographic and legal status data has been resumed in the INPADOC databases INPADOCDB/INPAFAMDB.

The coverage gap from week 25/2011 has been closed and current DE data will be provided close to the time of publication. Some delays for legal status information are still possible.

Recent developments at the German Patent Office brought significant enhancements to the legal status information: the coverage has been extended to include new legal status events and more legal effect dates.

For all current legal status events, a new set of legal status codes is applied, old codes will not be changed.

More details have been published by the European Patent Office. This includes a list of all new legal status codes and the corresponding old codes: http://www.epo.org/service-support/updates/2011/20110811b.html

Please use the new and corresponding old codes for legal status searching, e.g., "opposition filed": (DE8363 or DER026)/LSC.
