PATENT LITERATURE IN-HOUSE LENDING

In-house lending services are provided for public by the reading room of the IPO CZ.

Patent literature, namely descriptions of inventions, utility models and industrial designs, published or protected by correspondent granted titles of protection inland and outland, other supporting literature such as bulletins of patent offices, annual listings of granted titles of protection for inventions, classification documents, etc are available. The in-house lending system is based on systematic ordering of individual files of titles of protection in the fund according to IPC (International patent classification).

Documents from less frequented countries aren't organized according to IPC, but in numerical files. If the document requested is stored in an external archive (which is typical for older documents), it will be delivered within one week.
