This database is updated regularly with newly granted patents and applications opened to public inspection.

Images are not searchable but can be viewed for any particular patent that has been returned in a hit list.

These patents can only be searched by their patent number, titles, owner, inventor, or classification. Note about completeness of the Date Fields: The issue date is searchable from 1869 to the last updated date. The filing date is not available for patents registered prior to August 15, 1978.
