Submission + - Google Launches Patent Search Site

eldavojohn writes: "Google has launched a a search site for patents today. The FAQ explains how it works: "Using the same technology that powers Google Book Search, Google has converted the entire image database of U.S. patents into a format that's easy to search. You can search the full text of U.S. patents from the Google Patent Search homepage, or visit the Advanced Patent Search page to search by criteria like patent number, inventor, and filing date." Perhaps the jobs of patent lawyers and intellectual property search will be getting easier."
