Are you interested in learning more about patent searching?
Register today to attend this in-person, interactive session on February 6 from 10-11:30 a.m. CT, led by United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) experts who will demonstrate how to conduct a patent search using the Patent Public Search tool.
Participants will learn basic information about:
- Conducting a preliminary U.S. patent search
- The six-step patentability search strategy
- Patent searching tools
This new web-based patent search tool replaces legacy search tools Public-Examiner’s Automated Search Tool (PubEast), Public-Web-based Examiner’s Search Tool (PubWest), Patent Full-Text and Image Database (PatFT), and Patent Application Full-Text and Image Database (AppFT), which were retired in September 2022.
For more information about patent searching, visit the search for patents page on the USPTO website.
