Questel.Orbit Releases FamPat

Feb 04, 2005

Questel.Orbit, a provider of intellectual property information services, has announced the release of FamPat, its new international patent family database. FamPat is based on PlusPat, Questel.Orbit's international patent database. The FamPat patent family design groups together the patent records from the countries and patent issuing authorities in which protection for one particular invention has been applied for and/or granted. FamPat is intended to uphold the family spirit by considering the invention as the sole criterion, which enables a more precise search and a concise display which can be expanded to related inventions.
