The service provides information from a database of global patent applications and claims, allowing search for existing rights to inventions and technologies. The central source aggregates filings with patent authorities worldwide and provides search results in multiple languages.
API methods support submission of queries related to patent filings, with returned matches from global sources, tagged for source language. Patent descriptions provide legal status of any claim to intellectual property rights, images, and U.S. reassignments of patents from other countries.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
