|The www.patentanalysis.com search portal has closed as of April 2010. The company is now only providing XML data from the New Zealand IPONZ collection.|
The data coverage available on PatentAnalysis.com is limited in scope but is notable for its coverage of New Zealand as well as Australian documents. In addition, documents from the United States, European Patent Office, and WIPO/PCT are made available. At the time of this writing, legal status information, family data, PDF downloads, and document images are all available for New Zealand documents, but none of the other authorities.
The following coverage dates were obtained from the system's user guide materials and represent the reported start dates for each collection. Please note that gaps in coverage may exist in any collection due to a number of factors, such as missing documents, scanning errors, OCR errors, even failure of national and regional patent offices to report data. No data source can be considered 100% complete, and searchers should consult as many unique data sources as possible.
