Accessing United States Bulk Patent Data with patentpy and patentr

  title={Accessing United States Bulk Patent Data with patentpy and patentr},
  author={James Yu and Hayley Beltz and Milind Y. Desai and P{\'e}ter {\'E}rdi and Jacob G. Scott and Raoul R. Wadhwa},
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) provides publicly accessible bulk data files containing information for all patents from 1976 onward. However, the format of these files changes over time and is memory-inefficient, which can pose issues for individual researchers. Here, we introduce the patentpy and patentr packages for the Python and R programming languages. They allow users to programmatically fetch bulk data from the USPTO website and access it locally in a cleaned… Expand

International patent families: from application strategies to statistical indicators
An in-depth analysis of the characteristics of international patent families, including their domestic component, suggests that the number of patent filings in the priority country within a patent family as well as the timespan between the first and last filings within a family are other insightful indicators of the value of patented innovations.

When to file for a patent? The scientist's perspective.
The current state of the disclosure requirements in the context of patenting of life sciences inventions is looked at with the aim of providing some practical guidelines for researchers as to when an invention has been made and at what point in time it may be worth/reasonable to start filing a patent application.

Ranking Algorithms: Application for Patent Citation Network
This work quantifies the influence of a patent by examining two major methods of ranking of nodes in networks: the celebrated “PageRank” and one of its extensions, reinforcement learning. Expand
Recognition of emerging technology trends: class-selective study of citations in the U.S. Patent Citation Network
It is demonstrated that the laser/inkjet printer technology emerged from the recombination of two existing technologies: sequential printing and static image production. Expand
Securing and Maintaining a Strong Patent Portfolio for Pharmaceuticals.
To maximize patent protection and value, companies should develop a patent strategy that aligns with business goals, establish patent awareness within the company and procedures for identifying patentable inventions, and prepare applications with an eye toward monetization. Expand
From ranking and clustering of evolving networks to patent citation analysis
By adopting a citation-based recursive ranking method for patents, the evolution of new fields of technology can be traced and a reinforcement learning based ranking algorithm was adopted and found more appropriate than the now classical PageRank algorithm. Expand
Patent portfolio management: literature review and a proposed model
The paper proposes a reference model to manage patent portfolios, which comprises four stages aligned with the three goals of the NPD portfolio management, and develops a systematic literature review on portfolio management to organize the evolution and tendencies of patent portfolio management.

  • 2015
After the filing of a priority patent application, patent protection should be initiated at least in countries that are of particular commercial importance, and subsequent inventions relating to novel uses, formulations, dosage regimens, and combinations with other treatment modalities should be protected by further patent applications to extend patent term.
