EPO confirms that Open Patent Services is experiencing problems

The European Patent Office has confirmed that their Open Patent Services (OPS) server is experiencing problems.

For Patent Grabber(TM) users, this will likely cause problems with downloading EP published applications, EP granted patents earlier than 1999, and INPADOC legal status summaries. It will also cause problems for the "Include family identifiers" option of the U.S. Patent Biblio spreadsheet. For reviewing search results, there will be problems with using the "Biblio" and "Family" radio buttons that are next to the search results field.

We will let you know when the issue has been resolved.
