How to get bulk downloads of utility patents from companies

  1. Jan 4, 2015 #1
    The USPTO allows the public to access all their patents. But I want to get bulk downloads of utility patents from high tech companies, especially IBM and Samsung.

    Is there a way to download bulk downloads that are easy to access? I already went to http://www.google.com/googlebooks/uspto-patents.html
    and I DON'T know how to access them! Are there other bulk download of patents that I can access by pdf or doc file?

    That's kind of a strange request, IMO. Why don't you just download them from the USPTO?

    I don't know how to access the files that they put the text in.

    They are either *.txt files or *.xml files. In either case you can use any text editor.
    ... unless they're too big for your editor.

    What are you using?

    The problem is that I'm not using xml file viewers. What xml file viewers would you have to use or recommend to view those files? Also, is there a way to organize the text in a way that patents are separate ?

    Do the patent applications include the patent grants of the same week? Its because I can't have duplicates.
