API changes

Hi everyone,

I have been using the patent API for a month now, without any problems. I was always able to make queries according to the query language parameters. However, since today the 05.07.2021, the API seems to be down. The use cases that the instructions give are the only queries that still respond with patent data. For instance, the following should work but doesn't:

https://api.patentsview.org/patents/query?q={%22_gte%22:{%22patent_number%22:8888888}}&f=[%22patent_number%22,%22patent_date%22]

I hope somebody can help me out.

Thanks!

For instance:  https://api…

For instance: 

https://api.patentsview.org/inventors/query?q={%22inventor_last_name%22:%22smith%22}&f=[%22assignee_organization%22,%22inventor_id%22,%22inventor_first_name%22,%22inventor_last_name%22]

I could not find any inventor with the very common last name Smith. Same with all the info for issued patents. \

Could you please check the issue further?

Thank you!
