• Patent Grant Full Text (1976 - Present)

    Updated: Jan 12, 2014

    Patent Grant Full Text (2001 to Present): Contains the full text of each patent grant issued weekly (Tuesdays) from January 2001 to Present (includes tables, genetic sequence data and "in-line" mathematical expressions; excludes images/drawings). The file formats are Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) in accordance with the U.S. Patent Grant Version 2.4 Document Type Definition (DTD) and eXtensible Markup Language (XML) in accordance with the U.S. Patent Grant Version 2.5; 4.0 International Common Element (ICE); 4.1 ICE; 4.2 ICE; 4.3 ICE; and 4.4 ICE Document Type Definitions (DTDs). Because of the concatenation of the individual SGML/XML documents, these files will not parse successfully or open/display by default in Internet Explorer. They also will not import into MS Excel. Each SGML/XML document within the file should have one start tag and one end tag. Concatenation creates a file that contains 4,000 plus start/end tag combinations. If you take one document out of the Patent Grant Full Text file and place it in a directory with the correct DTD and then double click that individual document, Internet Explorer will parse/open the document successfully. NOTE: You may receive a warning about Active X controls. NOTE: All Patent Grant Full Text files will open successfully in MS Word; NotePad; WordPad; and TextPad. Approx. 4,000 patent grants per week.
