PTAB API (Beta)

1.0 | Patents


Our Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) API (Beta) is a RESTful API with an easy to use search interface. You can easily browse USPTO PTAB public documents, search for specific content, and request a bulk download of PTAB content.  

The PTAB API synchronizes nightly with the PTAB E2E (end-to-end) system making the latest public America Invents Action (AIA) Trials information and documents available.

The PTAB API is a beta (initial) release.

Please include tech center and/or art unit search/filter capabilities in your API.

It looks like the SSL certificate for https://ptabdata.uspto.gov/ may have expired

Hi -- that URL is not directly accessible you need to something like https://ptabdata.uspto.gov/ptab-api/documents to make an api request.

Please include the patent status, like "Pending" or "Instituted" or "Not Instituted" or "Terminated", in the document data.

There was a story last year about the USPTO API being made public: http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2016/06/20/will-happen-uspto-releases-apis/id=70209/ When will you be done beta testing and deliver a GA release product?
