Abstract

A universal internet product code system and method of classifying a plurality of items is provided so that the items can be remotely searched on a network. The system and method includes, for each item of the plurality of items, receiving a request for registering an item, receiving data describing the item and determining if at least one of a plurality of previously created categories already properly include the item. The item is then assigned to at least one of the previously created categories when the item is already properly included in the category. Otherwise, the method includes creating a new category associated with the item when none of the previously created categories should include the item. Additionally first codes are created having an entire character sequence corresponding to a combination of categories including the new categories so that each the first code indicates a type of item. This also includes assigning one of the first codes to the item, and finally relationally storing the first code, the category to which the item is assigned, and the data describing the item on a database.
