Google USPTO Bulk Downloads: PAIR Data

Google has begun crawling patent documents, including image file wrappers, from the USPTO's public PAIR (Patent Application Information Retrieval) site. This crawl operates continually and will be retrieving both already-submitted documents and new documents as the USPTO makes them publicly available.

Except for repackaging into zip files, these documents are hosted by Google unchanged. A single zip file is created for each patent application. There is detailed documentation about the format as well as the overview below.

How to access PAIR data using http

To access a particular zip file, replace "APP_NUM" in the following URL with an application number of interest:

http://storage.googleapis.com/uspto-pair/applications/APP_NUM.zip
For example:
http://storage.googleapis.com/uspto-pair/applications/12102391.zip

Over 5200000 applications are available. Additional applications will be added regularly as the crawl progresses.

How to access PAIR data using gsutil

For a complete list of available applications, including last-modified dates, you can use the gsutil command-line tool. Download and install gsutil as described here. You do not need to create Google Storage credentials to access this public data. A command like

gsutil ls -l gs://uspto-pair/applications/126000*
lists the available applications whose numbers begin with 126000. The command
gsutil ls -l gs://uspto-pair
lists all available applications (quite a long list).

The gsutil tool can also be used to download files, using the "gsutil cp" command.

Overview of zip file contents

Each zip file contains the following:

No guarantees are made with respect to the completeness or accuracy of this data. In particular, the crawl may discover and retrieve additional documents over time, even for applications submitted long ago. Please visit the USPTO PAIR site for official, current, and complete information.
