Patent Number Searching Tutorial


This video will show you how to locate a US
patent document if you have the patent number. The US Patent and Trademark Office PatFT database
provides access to every patent issued by the US government. You can retrieve a known patent by using the
patent number search. Select the number search option from PatFT
patents home page. In the query box, enter the patent number
and click the search button. For example 5960411 The database will return either an html version
of the patent or for older patents it will only display the patent number, issue date,
and current classification. To view the original patent document click
the images link at the top. Each page of the patent is displayed as a
PDF file. Click the Full Pages link to get the full
patent.
