Google Launches Patent Search Feature
From my co-blogger, Bob Ambrogi, I learned that Google has added a patent search as a new Google feature. The new tool searches the full text of more than 7 million U.S. patents, from the 1790s through mid-2006. Advanced searching allows you to search by patent number, inventor, classification and date. Steve Nipper of the Invent Blog the new function rave reviews. Patent Baristas is more temperate, griping about Google's practice of issuing new tools in beta and warning users to take care since Google's database does not include patent applications or recently issued patents.
