The EPO is running an online survey to gather feedback on what users find most and least useful about esp@cenet, and access to free patent information in general.
The EPO has an excellent track record of listening to users, so don’t miss this opportunity to suggest improvements. Some improvements I’d like to see are the ability to sort search results and better integration of the ECLA classification search. While I love the ability to search and browse ECLA, transferring ECLA codes to the search form is clunky.
Note to Canadian residents: The survey asks users to identify their location. Unfortunately, Canada was omitted (by accident, I’m sure) from the list of countries. A request for correction has been made.
