Update: As of August 11, 2021, all the bulk download tables for granted patents have been regenerated and reloaded to the bulk downloads page. Thank you all for your support and patience as we navigated this data issue. 

As of August 10, 2021, the bulk download tables are not up to date with data from the last update cycle. We are currently conducting additional quality control on the regenerated files and will post an updated message when the new tables are available with data through March 2021. 

So far the following tables have been regenerated and are available on the bulk downloads' page. Note that all files will be overwritten with the most-updated version of the table by 8:00pm Eastern time on Thursday, August 12th.

RE: DATA RELEASE NOTICE

Hi, thank you for the update. 

Can you clarify whether these updates will alter data for patents published through the end of 2020?

Particularly in these files: patent, cpc_current, patent_assignee, patent_govintorg ?

Patents through end of 2020 not affected

Good question - no, there are no issues that we are aware of before 2021. Data from 2020 is intact. There were null entries in the last update from January 1, 2021 to March 30, 2021 that are now regenerated! 

Best,
