Title
¬The arrival of free patent information : Internet provision of patent information for free is affecting vendors
Source
Information today. 15(1998) no.3, S.19-20
Year
1998
Abstract
Discusses the implications for users of patent information of the decision by the European Patent Office (EPO) to follow the US by offering the full text of patents, free, via the Internet. This poses a threat to the traditional vendors and could result in the loss of sophisticated searching should they withdraw from the patent information market. While it is possible that the Internet and online vendors could supply complementary levels of service, high quality patent abstracting and indexing is expensive and vendors are under pressure to reduce prices. Describes the implementation of the EPO project and the impact on MicroPatent of IBM's Web based patent service
