Today Patents.com announced the launch of their global patent search site as part of a platform comprised of over 12 million searchable patent documents in 3 languages. In the coming months, the company will add 12 more languages and continue growing the number of patent and translated patent documents to over 450 million. Patents.com is a valued resource for scientists, engineers and patent professionals, providing them not only with data, but ultimately with a place to connect with other professionals and a place to buy, sell, license and service patents.
"Patents are currently a very large business - an estimated $500 billion in 2007. Patents.com aims to be a catalyst for accelerated global growth of the market for intellectual property. We will do this by simplifying key processes related to patent discovery, communication, and transactions. And we will do much of this free of charge, thereby making advanced global patent search accessible to all," said Rob Monster, Co-Founder and Chairman of Patents.com.
"Patents.com will be a valuable source for university researchers, patent lawyers, and garage inventors," said Paul Ratcliffe, Co-Founder and CEO of Patents.com. "The site will be a 'one stop shop' for all IP needs from data and translation and ultimately to the licensing and sale of IP through a global patent exchange."
Patents.com is launching their site today which allows users to search for patents in English, Japanese and Korean. This includes data search and translation functionality. In the coming months features will be added to the site providing a platform for the IP community to connect, learn, and search in the user's preferred language.
Patents.com is building the most comprehensive worldwide source of patent data - to ultimately include 450 million searchable indexed patent pages available in 15 native languages. It is a source for both large and small companies, inventors and patent professionals to search, connect with like professionals through a hosted community platform enabling them to generate business opportunities, including the licensing and sale of intellectual property.
