Find Pending Patents That May Be Issued to a Company?

TOPIC:In this example, you want to find patents that have been applied for by the toymaker Mattel in the U.S., but have not been published or granted.

Derwent World Patents Index® (File 351) uses a four-letter assignee code, along with the prefix CK= or PA=. The assignee code retrieves parent and subsidiary records for companies having fifty or more patents. Some codes contain I (assigned to individuals) or N (non-unique code). Using these codes may retrieve false hits. U.S. Patents Fulltext (Files 654, 652) and CLAIMS®/U.S. Patents (File 340) assign a numeric code and the prefix PA=. Codes will retrieve all patents assigned to a named company only. (pa=53126).
