“No search is too great or too small”

Why use Planet Patent? Here are 5 simple reasons:


  1. Novelty searches start at just $375 for mechanical inventions of average complexity.
  2. Searches include PDF copies of cited documents at no extra charge for the U.S., WIPO/PCT, EPO and many other patent authorities.
  3. Text searchable U.S., WIPO/PCT, and EPO cited documents are also available at low or no cost upon request.
  4. Print copies of cited documents are available upon request and provided at cost.

Thorough Searches

  1. Searching over 80 million patents and applications from 130 countries.

  3. U.S., CPC and IPC class searching on every search.
  4. USPTO examiners are consulted for field of search on novelty searches at the client’s request.
  5. Customized search reports to suit your requirements are available.
