Google Launches Patent Search

Google has launched a new search engine for finding U.S. patents going back more than 200 years, Google announced on its blog. Danny has some details at Search Engine Land, and Gary Price shares a roundup of patent search options.

Google Patent Search uses the same technology behind Google Book Search, with similar ability to perform full-text searches, scroll through pages, and zoom in on text and images. An advanced search feature lets users search by criteria like patent number, inventor and filing date.
