Online Patent Research Tools

The first big service was the IBM intellectual property network which has changed it's name to the Delphion Intellectual Property Network which was acquired by Thomason in December 2002. You must have a subscription to use this service. There may be a free limited subscription but I have not yet found it. Keep? Remove?

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Web Patent Databases

now includes every United States patent ever issued, a total of more than 6.5 million patents, says a USPTO news release. Two Databases are availible, a Full-Text Database and a Bibliographic Database with boolean search functions. "Effective 1 October 2000, the Full-Text Database now offers all US patents issued since 1790, in the form of searchable patent numbers and current US classifications hyperlinked to full-page images of each page of each patent."

The European Network of Patent Databases:

espace was created to "increase the general awareness of the wealth of information contained in patent documents, Switzerland and other members of the European Patent Organisation have set up a patent database known as esp@cenet. Using this database, anybody can gain a first impression of the kind of knowledge contained in patent certificates. But a word of warning: Esp@cenet was designed as an information awareness programme and is not the same as a professional patent search."
