How to get info on international IP patents? (I'm a bit clueless!)
posted by low_horrible_immoral to Technology (5 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
I need information about NEW international patents - US, European and, I think, Japanese - covering a specific technology (in this case, powder metallurgy). Specifically I need:
- the name of the company patenting the technology
- the dates when submitted and patent created
- some information about the technology (so I can put together a brief sentence about it)
I've been told I would need to visit the Patent Office in London to get this info (I'm in the UK) - but is there any way of doing it online for free or by paid subscription?
Any help appreciated as this is all new to me!
