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 (BDSS) (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.

PAIR Bulk Data (PBD) (Beta Released 11/21/15)
PAIR Bulk Data lets you search, customize and download multiple records of public patent data. It contains over 9.4 million records, including the bibliographic, published documents and patent term extension data tabs in Public PAIR from 1981-present, which is updated daily and is an extract of the source data from Public PAIR. There is also an Application Programming Interface (API).

We value your feedback and realize the importance of image file wrapper data. Thank you for your patience as we provide additional bulk patent examination data from Public PAIR. IFW bulk image data will be coming later.

Since June 2013, Reed Tech has made Public PAIR image data for individual patent applications at: http://patents.reedtech.com/Public-PAIR.php. So that all data users can benefit, we authorize Reed Tech to "mine" our data during hours of low usage. In December 2016, Reed Tech began offering an index file that includes application number, the date the file was extracted from Public PAIR and the file size.

You can find an individual patent or trademark without using bulk data. To search patents, visit: https://www.uspto.gov/patents-application-process/search-patents. To search trademarks, visit: https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database.
