Japan Platform for Patent Information(J-PlatPat) is a free database related to industrial property rights such as patents, utility models, designs and trademarks operated by National Center for Industrial Property Information and Training(INPIT).
J-PlatPat has suffered a serious cyber attack since March 10, 2017 and is making an emergency stop.
When accessing J-PlatPat, the following message is displayed on the screen.
“J-Plat-Pat is currently unavailable due to an unexpected system failure.
We are working on early recovery. Thank you very much for your kind patience.”
J-PlatPat is a database often used for patent search and trademark search and so on, so many people are waiting for recovery.
Additional notes: J-PlatPat recovered on March 17, 2017.
