Google Patent Search

Google is now offering patent search through their site (click here to check it out). A software engineer from the company commented: “It’s a natural extension of our mission to make this public-domain government information more easily accessible using Google’s search technology.”

The initiative should make the general public more familiar with patents, inventions and both the limits and opportunities of protecting intellectual property. Some people argued, however, that the tool that Google created offers little or no value to inventors, lawyers or anyone else that deals with patents professionaly.
