Search over 7 million US patents with Google Patent Search

Last week, Google released the Google Patent Search where people like you and me can search over 7 million patents granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

You can also perform an advanced search of patents by Patent number, Inventor and Filing Date.
And above all, you get to view images of the original patents online.

According to the official Google Blog, Google Patent search uses the same technology as Google Book search. So its very similar to the Google Book search experience.

Each patent in Google Patent search is divided into 4 sections : Abstract, Drawing, Description and Claims.
Besides this, you can also search for information from within an individual patent.
