Secure competitive advantage in India – STN® now offers comprehensive Indian patent information
INFULL adds the full-text of Indian patent applications and granted patents to STN / Full-texts in English language / to be presented at this year’s PATINFO from June 5-7, 2013 in Ilmenau, Germany
India is an important future market. As with all emerging markets, there are risks involved, for example, for companies doing research and development. For such companies it is a crucial factor to have their intellectual property protected. Therefore, it is of vital importance that these risks be minimized by means of targeted searches and first-class information on patents and patent applications.
INFULL, the new Indian full-text patent file offered by FIZ Karlsruhe on STN International, enables researchers, developers, and patent specialists to access comprehensive patent information from India. The information spectrum of INFULL comprises the state of the art, patentability, freedom to operate, and licensing possibilities. Searches on infringements of own patents by third parties are also possible.
“The new database offers access to the Indian patent landscape. This important enhancement of STN secures the competitive advantages of our customers on an even broader basis,” says Dr. Rainer Stuike-Prill, Vice President Marketing & Sales at FIZ Karlsruhe.
At present, the INFULL file contains over 444,000 records in English language and more than 120,000 images from 1912 onwards. About 500 documents are published each week. The records of the database contain bibliographic data, various patent classifications including the new CPC codes, abstracts, and the full text of descriptions and claims. New documents are available about one week after publication with the complete content.
INFULL will be presented at this year’s PATINFO (held on June 5-7, 2013 in
Ilmenau, Germany) together with other important STN databases and features, including the new STN platform, precise CPC searching in patent databases, Asian full-text patent files, and many more. A special workshop will be dedicated to patent full-text databases on STN and the advantages of combined searches in full-text and bibliographic value-added patent files on STN (CAplus, DWPI, etc.).
