The PatentsView database is created from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) public bulk data releases available at These data releases provide information on published patent applications (since 2001) and granted patents (since 1976). The PatentsView database for patents is available for download upon request, MySQL dump. The PatentsView database for  published applications contains pre-grant publications (PGPub) of patent applications (see MPEP § 1120) and is available in the top row of data in the table above. At this time, the published applications database does not contain the earliest years (2001-2005) of data or any of the disambiguation results.
