Assignee Search

The search by assignee wizard allows you to carry out searches by names of assignees and owners.

You can also use the corporate tree.

It is recommended to use this wizard when you wish to carry out searches on all the subsidiaries of a company. The general request generated by this wizard is specifically adapted not to be blocked by the number of maximum characters by the request.

Please note that the menu on the left is retractable by a click on the double-arrow button .

The question marks allow you the ability to open contextual help menus thus making it easier for you to use  the wizard.

The Coverage Details link takes you to Questel’s corporate site where you can view the latest update information for Fullpat, FamPat, and the Fulltext collections.

At the top of the page, you have an input field for a quick search symbolized by a magnifying glass. You can directly enter a keyword or a name: the search will be performed in text fields + applicant + inventor. The hyphens are automatically replaced by the joint operator.

You can use truncation and operators.
