SEARCH

Query page contains a certain number of fields for entry of bibliographic data search criteria. Each field differs according to the type of the data to be searched, such as:
  • textual,
  • numeric,
  • date.
Industrial property search comprises searches of:
Search windows differ depending on whether trademarks, patents, industrial designs or international trademark registrations are searched. Searching logic is the same only the fields for defining the search criteria are different.
First, select a field you want to search from the field menu (column 1), then, select an operator from the operator menu (column 2) and finally, enter a desired search criterion in the query criteria field.
All the fields are mutually connected by a logic operator AND, each individual field allowing the entry of several different criteria connected by operator OR or AND.

Characters

Searches of industrial property published by SIPO support use of all the characters defined by Windows 1250/ANSI Standards for computer presentation of Central and Western European characters. Specific characters missing in the Croatian keyboard may be typed in two ways:
  • by using (left) ALT control key on the computer keyboard and corresponding Win 1250/ANSI decimal code (table of codes).
    NOTE: When quoting decimal character codes, leading zeroes, as presented in the table of codes, have to be quoted as well. ANSI decimal codes are marked green, meaning that the quotation thereof by typing or copying requires change of the code page in the Windows environment, or selection of Western European values in the View->Encoding Menu available on the Internet Explorer.
  • by copying a representation of a desired specific character (table of codes) in the search criteria field.
NOTE: The table of codes contains all the alphanumeric characters presented in Latin-2 (ISO-8859-2) and Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) code pages!
Examples of quoting specific characters in query forms:

  • International trademark registrations the verbal element of which contains letter ô:
    Verbal element LIKE *ô*

    A result of the quoted search will contain the following verbal names:
     
    • Côte d'Or
    • LANCÔME
    • RHÔNE-POULENC
    • chocône

  • All the published applications and rights relating to domestic trademarks involving KRAŠ as applicant/holder:
    Holder LIKE KRAŠ*

    A result of the quoted search will contain the names of the following applicants/holders:
     
    • Kraš, prehrambena industrija d.d.
     
    • KRAŠ, prehrambena industrija d.d.

The above mentioned examples show that the search is case-insensitive, meaning that irrespective of whether the search criteria is indicated in small or capital letters, the result will contain all the rights/applications meeting the content of the criteria!

Operators

  • =
    Kod tekstualnih polja, ovaj operator se može koristiti na isti način kao operator LIKE tako da se bilo gdje u uzorku obavezno stavi znak *.
    polje = *uzo*rak*
  • >
  • <
  • >=
  • <=
  • LIKE
    Used for comparison of character values (strings)
    Field Like pattern
  • BETWEEN
    Za određivanje raspona vrijednosti omeđenog s dva izraza
    polje BETWEEN izraz1 AND uzraz2, pri čemu izraz1 AND izraz2 predstavljaju raspon vrijednosti
If the value of the field matches the pattern as indicated, the result is True, otherwise is False.
Definition of patterns:
When comparing or searching character values, it is very important to define well a matching pattern.
Matching pattern characters are as follows:
? replacing one character
* replacing zero or several characters
Example 1:
Representative: LIKE CP* all the representatives whose name starts with CP
Example 2:
We want to find all trademark holders involving LEK in their names. In such a case the search criteria will be:
Holder: LIKE *LEK*
The search result will include the following companies/persons:
  • LEK, Ljubljana
  • Ljubljanske Mlekarne
