– Country field in Patentscope field combination search
In Reply To
Does anyone know what the "country" means in Field Combination Search and how does it differ from the "Office code"?
Resulting numbers are slightly different when searching, say, a) applicant=Amazon and country=EP with 613 results, as compared to b) applicant=Amazon and office code=EP with 675 hits.
So, does "country" mean where the receiving patent office is located? And how does it differ from office code?
I cannot find proper documentation on these various fields and their meanings. Maybe I'm just missing the right manuals...?
