Anyone performed data scraping on USPTO? someone has a tool/code that can be used to extract data from USPTO and have it as SQL DB?
Here is a python project that scrapes the USPTO raw data files and parses them into CSV files, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases.
IP Watchdog recently ran a story about recent developments in obtaining bulk file wrapper data from the USPTO. It also describes the efforts of various companies in "scraping" data from USPTO databases.
Some file wrapper data is available for bulk download from Patent Examination Data System. This contains complete file wrapper data, for those applications open to public inspection, from 1981 to the present (updated daily). The data prior to 1981 are incomplete. The downloads are in JSON and XML file formats, which can be imported into a database.
The USPTO also provides some large data sets as "Research Data Sets".
