Recent Updates

  • To query patents by the US Class, use the CCL field code.

    Keep in mind that US classes evolve over time, and patents are continuously re-classified. So the classes printed on the printed patent (PDF) may not match the classes we have on record.

    The CCL query finds patents classified in the specified class by both Primary and Cross Reference classifications

    AcclaimIP processes the new classification file when it is released six times per year.

    About Custom Data Fields

    The custom fields feature is available to customers who have purchased the add-on module.  This article and others in this chapter are targeted for Custom Field administrators who have access privileges to add, edit, delete and assignee access rights to custom fields.  Users of custom fields should refer to the chapter called "Using Custom Fields" in this help guide.

    Custom fields allows you to add your own custom data inside of AcclaimIP and search, filter, sort, facet, import and export the data as if it were part of our normal patent data set.  There is no performance impact when integrating your custom data with global patent data.  

    Additionally, if you license our API, you can update custom field data automatically from your AIM or Annuities Management application among other capabilities.  To use the AcclaimIP API you must have an additional license, and you will need programmers to implement features on your end.  API documentation is stored in a separate system.

    Importing Patents from a Spreadsheet

    Patents can be imported into AcclaimIP from data sent to you in spreadsheets or text files such as emails and word processing documents.  You import patents to a research folder which can be shared with other users in your workgroup (company) or with external AcclaimIP users from other organizations.
