Today’s post is a list of resources FYI.  Thanks to my colleague Sebastian Derwisch who recently sent me the first link to priorsmart.com.  It’s a free IP resource to do worldwide patent searches, accessing 60+ patent offices in one search box.  (FYI Google Patent Search searches only the USPTO).  The second link is from patentlyo.com with links to other available patent search tools, along with some comments.  Finally, I mentioned this entry to Victoria here in the office and she sent me the third link which is the “Zimmerman’s research guide” – it provides detailed info on US patent searches and there you will also find a link to foreign patents.  Happy patent searching!
