With an intent to make the patent data center publicly available for academic consumption, we do offer a free version. The free version is querying the same contiguous and comprehensive database, the only difference is how soon you can execute full queries and see the resulting data. These limitations are imposed to assure that the computing capabilities of the patent datacenter are not compromised. We balance the load of queued queries so the system is always available.
To get started with our system, please follow the simple steps below:
Create an account by clicking on the "signup" button (You must have an EDU email address to signup).
Check your email, follow the instructions to "activate" your account.
Login to the "database"
Prepare you query in sandbox mode (Query Database::Basic).
Execute your prepared query to place it in the queue.
