lapse_of_patent field missing?

Hello,

The us_term_of_grant file appears to be missing all data on the field "lapse_of_patent".  For example, all lines in the us_term_of_grant.tsv file have no values for "lapse_of_patent".

'"uuid"\t"patent_id"\t"lapse_of_patent"\t"disclaimer_date"\t"term_disclaimer"\t"term_grant"\t"term_extension"',

'"0000hq4800wcm85ghvyz34mbe"\t"D657425"\t""\t""\t""\t"14"\t""',

'"00013ul6gy7ydcy6qi9f4sib4"\t"10323501"\t""\t""\t""\t""\t"1266"',

Is this a data error?

Thank you,

Chris

Hello Chris, there is…

Hello Chris, there is variation in the raw data we pull from USPTO at times. We used to get lapse_of_patent information from those bulk downloads but have not for some update cycles now. While there is a chance that we may have that information from USPTO again in the future, our team is looking into other sources for this data! 

Best,

PV Team
