The EPO has recently launched a new product: Linked open EP data. This open and free data set contains bibliographic information of EP publications and the Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) hierarchy. Linked data , also known as Semantic Web, facilitates combining a particular data set with other linked data sets in any domain including patents. Given its URI, data about a resource, e. g. a patent publication, can be retrieved in a variety of formats over the web. For occasional use there is a simple data browser, an API and a SPARQL query interface. For heavier use, bulk data is available for download.
In this presentation we will introduce this new EPO product and illustrate the different ways this data can be inspected and retrieved. We will explore the content and point out potential use scenarios.
