The USPTO has announced that a 2002 Annual Index to the Electronic Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office—Patents (eOG:P) will be published on DVD-ROM in early 2003. Although the eOG:P began publication in July 2002, the eOG:P team is gathering and converting the data from January through June in order to provide a complete annual index.
This annual index will be cumulative of the information contained in the weekly issues of the eOG:P for 2002. Indexes and bibliographic records for the year will be included in this one source. Bibliographic records contain a representative claim and drawing (if applicable) as well as classification, inventor and assignee information. Consistent with the weekly eOG:P issues, patents can be browsed by type of patent (utility, plant, etc.), classification (class or class/subclass), patentee name, and geographical location. The Official Gazette Notices, covering both patents and trademarks, will also be included.
Due to the large amount of data, the eOG:P Annual Index will be published on one or two DVD-ROM discs, not on CD-ROM. The price of the eOG:P Annual Index will be $300.00; it is not included in the annual subscription price of the eOG:P. Subscribers will receive notification when the annual index is available.
The Index of Patents Issued From the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will be published in paper format through 2002 to coincide with the paper publication of the Official Gazette—Patents, the last paper issue of which is September 24, 2002. This publication will continue to be supplied by the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office.
