Google issues a daily XML file of new patent assignment data ( [obscured] /googlebooks/uspto-patents-assignments.html) and a weekly XML file of newly issued patents ( [obscured] /googlebooks/uspto-patents-grants-text.html). Each of the downloadable zip files has a single XML file that is a concatenation of single patent XML documents.
Each of the XML patent documents includes a field called "Assignee" which identifies the name of the organization the patent is owned by. The assignee data will be cross-referenced against the name of companies in the CrunchBase ( [obscured] /). CrunchBase includes an API ( [obscured] /help/api).
The task is to query the CrunchBase API with each of the assignees from a particular XML patent data set to identify matches based on two criteria. First, the assignee name in the XML data should match the company name in the CrunchBase. Second, only companies with less than 1,000 employees according to the CrunchBase should be reported.
