Pricing for SELECTing Patent, Application, and Priority Numbers in the USPAT and IFI Database Families is Now Consistent with Similar Patent Databases on STN

07. March 2011

New pricing has been introduced for the USPAT databases (USPATFULL / USPAT2 / USPATOLD) and the IFI databases (IFIPAT / IFIUDB / IFICDB) based on the number of records from which patent numbers are SELECTed. This introduction makes the pricing of USPAT and IFI database families consistent with other full-text and value-added patent databases on STN.

As with similar databases on STN, a per-record charge will now be applied in these databases whenever the SELECT command is executed for the following:

  • patent numbers (PN, PNK, PATS)
  • application numbers (AP, APPS)
  • priority application numbers (PRN, PRAI)

See HELP COST in any of the databases listed above for additional information.
