Bulk Data Products

We disseminate public patent and trademark pre-packaged or user-customized bulk data products.

Bulk data refers to putting all static data into a file or set of files, so that all of the data can be acquired with downloads.

Bulk Data Storage System (Released 10/1/15)
BDSS provides a single repository for raw public bulk data. BDSS also has research data from the Office of the Chief Economist, including PatentsView. The files are updated on a regular or ongoing basis.

In June 2013, we entered into a no-cost agreement with Reed Tech to make patent and trademark bulk data available to anyone free of charge. This data can be accessed at http://patents.reedtech.com or http://trademarks.reedtech.com.

Patent Examination Data System (Version 1.5.1 Released 9/28/18)
Patent Examination Data System allows customers to retrieve and download multiple records of USPTO patent application, patent filing status and transaction history data.
