Removed unsourced information[edit]

I have removed the following unsourced information:

The esp@cenet has the following main aims:

  • offer basic patent information to individuals, small and medium-sized enterprises, students etc
  • increase awareness and use of patent information at the national and European levels
  • support innovation, reduce wastage in the innovation cycle
  • supplement existing channels for the dissemination of patent information

Please cite your source. Thanks. --Edcolins 21:45, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

While doing my best to maintain a no malice view, I have great difficulties in understanding the above logic. Just why wipe the contents rather than take the approcimately 5 seconds on Google to determine the source? So, just google offer basic patent information to individuals, small and medium-sized enterprises, and you get this entry on EPO with the very text. Can this be so hard? And it would be more friendly and more helpful to add a cite tag if you cannot be bothered to Google. --22:37, 17 February 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.164.182.32 (talk)
Thanks for providing your source. The added material, i.e. the claimed aims of esp@cenet, seems to constitute promotional material. Since the source is not independent from the subject, I don't think it is appropriate to have the information in the wikipedia article. Please see Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, Wikipedia:Reliable sources, and Wikipedia:Primary sources. Thank you. --Edcolins (talk) 11:06, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Esp@cenetEspacenet — To conform to the standards at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (trademarks), i.e. ignore the "official" name and go with normal English. —Mcmullen writes (talk) 20:32, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's naming conventions.
  • Support per WP:MOSTM. TJ Spyke 04:33, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose per WP:IGNORE. Using the correct name here improves the article's accuracy and professionalism. It makes Wikipedia a more reliable encyclopedia and does not impede the reading of, or affect the understanding of, the article. The symbol is a part of the name itself. --Edcolins (talk) 18:22, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. The "@" is only decorative. Unless it is pronounced "Esp at cenet" instead of "espacenet" there is no reason to give this page special treatment. Cross porpoises (talk) 19:27, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Support as per nom and others. 'At' symbol is not functional, only substituting for a letter 'a'. Callmederek (talk) 20:24, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. Songs of ts steiner (talk) 19:51, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Support as I did with The Idolm@ster which is also nominated for moving. If @ is decorative it should not be used per MOSTM. Whydontyoucallme dantheman (talk) 02:04, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
