This is news to me and I find it problematic that
http://gauss.ffii.org/PatentView/EP772327 does not give me a warning that
this info may not be the actual granted patent. And if I really want the
authoritative text I should read the scanned PDFs. I (and politicians)
could easily have made a fool of myself by assuming Gauss was
I agree that it is even worse that Espacenet is equally guilty, but we
should be more honest than Espacenet.
To rectify this I think we should put a warning at the start of each
patent, so people will not use Gauss as authoritative source for patent
texts, but as informative only.
It could be as simple as:
Warning: The information here is not authoritative. <a
href="scanned PDF">See the authoritative text.</a>
or other text to that effect. It is not enough to put it on the frontpage
of Gauss as people will find patents through Google.
