Other features of the Claims database include Standardized Assignee names for each patent; annual updating of all Classification changes made by the USPO reflecting current and retrospective changes; and removal of all punctuation found in the Inventor name section, which will help eliminate false retrieval

Taken to its logical conclusion, these deficiencies will mean false retrievals
or missed searches or failure to provide catalog users with optimum search and retrieval conditions.
