PATENTSCOPE® search service: Removal of address data

In response to privacy concerns, address data will no longer be displayed for individual applicants and inventors on the Bibliographic Data tab in the PATENTSCOPE® search service. This change will have the effect that personal address data will no longer be indexed or displayed by internet search engines. Complete information for all applicants and inventors (including address data) will continue to be accessible on the front page of published PCT international patent applications and other documents available through the Documents tab in the PATENTSCOPE® search service.
