New Patent Public Search Tool from the USPTO

On February 1, 2022, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) released their new search interface, Patent Public Search, which provides full-text searching for all US patents since 1976 as well as by patent number back to 1790, published patent applications since March 1, 2001, and scanned patents (OCR). Patent Public Search will replace the internal tools that are used by USPTO patent examiners. The USPTO's announcement is available here.

Utah's Patent and Trademark Resource Center representatives, Alfred Mowdood and Tallie Casucci, can teach you, your research group, and/or your courses about this new tool and patent searching. Please note that Patent Public Search does not work on mobile phones or tablets, so users should continue to use PatFT and AppFT when on those devices. 

Please remember that according to Policy 7-002, University employees and some students should disclose to the PIVOT Center.
