I'm having trouble locating the pdf for what seems to be a GB Design which google patents indicates exist. Espacenet can't find it, Designview can't find it, there's no text/images in google patents.

Im probably using the wrong tools, but does anybody know which database to use?

An example would be GB201301573D0, though the one I'm looking for doesn't have any family members, so going through them is not an option.

  • Can you provide the desired patent number? – Eric S Jul 31 '18 at 12:53
  • @EricShain not really, but I just changed a few digits to getthe example in the question – DonQuiKong Jul 31 '18 at 14:00
  • Are you sure this is a design and not a utility patent. The US equivalent to the linked document is clearly a utility patent. – Eric S Jul 31 '18 at 22:12
  • The most recent listing in the gov.uk/check-the-design-journal is 6039937 Universal Smart Phone Magnetic Holder. That doesn't look like the same type of number as GB201301573D0 – George White Jul 31 '18 at 22:49

    If the number starts with GB than may try ipo.gov.uk/p-ipsum – AD Adhikary Aug 1 '18 at 2:33

If the number starts with GB than can be found https://www.ipo.gov.uk/p-ipsum also. But can not be found anywhere if ending with D0 as clarified in this link https://wiki.piug.org/display/PIUG/GB+patents+with+D0+kind+code. (Because D0 identifies that an GB application was filed, but the application is not (yet) published). This seems to solve the riddle you are facing.

  • I included a short summary of the information in the link. – DonQuiKong Aug 1 '18 at 7:59
