Here is the comment I wrote, it's slightly less than polite, but his
whining pissed me off. 8^(
The claims you get on http://gauss.ffii.org/PatentView/EP772327
are exactly the claims you get if you goto
I find it intellectually dishonest to claim that Gauss should be are factually
misrepresenting the patent claims, surely Espacenet is equally guilty of that
So I suggest that you direct your complaint towards Espacenet, and ask them to
publish the B1 claims as soon as a patent is granted.
At the same time I suggest that you ask espacenet to clearly designate on the
page if they are displaying an A1/A2/B1 document.
If you have a constructive suggestion of how to obtain text versions of the
claims of all the granted patents in the Gauss database (~43000), then I
would be happy to supply this information. (ascii is necessary for search,
display, and filtering)
However, since most are documents are only available as scanned PDFs from the
paper documents, this is not feasable.
Again try to suggest solutions to this problem, rather than bitching about us
not having solved it.
Currently, you can follow the bibliographic link in the bottom of a page to
espacenet, and click on the B1 PDF file there. This is the best solution
given Espacenets current limitations.
