PatBase and PatBase Express now host full text collections for 60 countries!

This Summer, Minesoft – the Global Patent Solutions Provider – has enhanced the data coverage in flagship product PatBase, to ensure that our users have access to the most comprehensive (and high quality!) patent data within the industry.

Starting with high-quality, global data is critical to the accuracy and precision of any patent search and analysis. If the underlying data is unreliable, then no end result using that data can be trusted. At Minesoft, we understand how important the quality of patent data is to create a complete and accurate picture of the intellectual property (IP) landscape. Every week, we work with the top patent offices around the world to enhance the data in all of our products, making thousands of error corrections to the data we receive and combining it with additional information to add quality to the end file.

The full text patent coverage in PatBase and PatBase Express has been increased to 60 authorities, with the addition of:

  • Estonia
  • Iceland
  • Turkey
  • Croatia
  • Czech Republic
  • Romania
  • Ukraine
  • Serbia
  • Italy
  • Cyprus

Minesoft develops international searchable patent databases and web-based products for Intellectual Property (IP) research. The company offers an array of products for the patent information industry, specialising in patent searching, IP document retrieval, patent analytics and competitive intelligence systems.

In May 2003, Minesoft and RWS announced their agreement to develop PatBase, a new searchable database of patent documents designed by experts in the complex art of patent information research. Since the first critically acclaimed public demonstrations in 2003, PatBase has gone on to attract over 50,000 users worldwide from the best-known names in industry as well as leading patent-litigating law firms.
