Patentdatenbanken – kostenfrei oder kommerziell

Seit fast 20 Jahren stellen die Patentämter für die Öffentlichkeit kostenfreie Patentdatenbanken bereit, zum Beispiel Espacenet, DEPATISnet und Patentscope. Auch einige Unternehmen (z.B. Google) bieten kostenfreie Patentrecherchen. Daneben gibt es eine Vielzahl an Patentinformationsprodukten, deren Nutzung kostenpflichtig ist. Die Frage, welches Produkt für den eigenen Bedarf das richtige ist, ist gar nicht so leicht zu beantworten.

In einem kurzen Artikel von Richard Garner, LexisNexis, werden einige Argumente aufgeführt für die Nutzung von kostenpflichtigen und von kostenfreien Patentdatenbanken.

Ontology-Based Approach for Retrieving Information from patents

An Ontology-Based Approach for Retrieving Information from patents

This paper describes an ontology-based computational framework that can resolve some issues in retrieving patents and patent related information. To gather comprehensive information relating to a particular subject in the patent ecosystem, interested parties (e.g. for patent filing or infringement analysis) are required to simultaneously search multiple information silos that include (a) patents; (b) scientific publications; (c) court cases; (d) patent file wrappers and (e) relevant laws and regulations.

To tackle the diversity of the documents a Patent System Ontology is developed, which standardizes the representation of the relevant document domains and provides the required semantics for the development of intelligent tools.

Automatic Text Simplification For Handling Intellectual Property

Published by the Association for Computational Linguistics

Abstract
Handling intellectual property involves the cognitive process of understanding the innovation described in the body of patent claims. In this paper we present an on-going project on a multi-level text simplification to assist experts in this complex task. Two levels of simplification procedure are described. The macro-level simplification results in
the visualization of the hierarchy of multiple claims.
The micro-level simplification includes visualization of the claim terminology, decomposition of the claim complex structure into a set of simple sentences and building a graph explicitly showing the interrelations of the invention elements. The methodology is implemented in an experimental text simplifying computer system. The motivation underlying this research is to develop tools that could increase the overall productivity of human users and machines in processing patent applications.
