New Patent Features on IP.knowledge

October 17, 2013

We have added two new categories of information in the right column of links that should be most useful for researchers and other non-IP lawyers interested in patents and patent search.

The first is a collection of links to Nolo Press online resources and books. Nolo Press is a publisher, widely known in the US as one of the best legal resources for legal matters for the non-lawyer. Their books and online materials (including online PTO forms) will help you understand the patent process and what you need to do – step-by-step – as an inventor or researcher involved with potentially patentable IP.

Second, we are providing links to a number of search tools, databases and services that will enable prior art searches and patent landscape mapping. Some of these services are subscription or fee-based. The commercial services listed here are examples of the types of services that are available. This list does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement of these services.

We hope these resources are of interest and value and I encourage you to let us know what you think.
