Planet Patent™ provides cutting-edge patent search services using the latest state-of-the-art technologies for our discriminating clients.

“No search is too great or too small”

Why use Planet Patent? Here are 5 simple reasons:


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

Thorough Searches

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

  • USPTO examiners are consulted for a field of search on novelty searches at the client’s request.
  • Customized search reports to suit your requirements are available.
