PTAB API

I’ve extracted data using the PTAB API — see below.

Caveat: Use these files at your own risk, as I have not checked them for accuracy. The PTAB’s database has known errors and likely has unknown errors. Further, my use of the API may have introduced errors and omissions.

Here is a document listing all proceedings in which the Board filed a paper before 11/23/16, as well as each board-filed document. (In other words, this document links the two spreadsheets above into one report.) I’ve included a hyperlink to each document.  HERE

Work in progress — the search engine below is under development

Here is a rudimentary search engine for papers and exhibits filed by the Board before Nov. 23, 2016. That is a collection of approximately 37,000 files, requiring 4.4 GB of memory. I copied them from the USPTO using the PTAB API, and I store them in my Google Drive. Right now only a small sample of the documents are searchable.

Tips on using the search engine:

There are three icons in the top/right corner of the window.

  • Use the magnifying glass to search. For example, enter “37 C.F.R. 42.8” — include the quotation marks — to search for documents that cite Rule 42.8
  • Use the gear icon to control download of search results — you can download documents for which you have clicked the checkc-box on the right edge of the results list
  • Use the refresh icon to refresh the search.
