Joshua Pearce (MSE/ECE) co-authored an article with PhD Candidate Yuenyong Nilsiam (ECE) titled “Open Source Database and Website to Provide Free and Open Access to Inactive U.S. Patents in the Public Domain” that was published in Inventions.
The results showed how the Free Inactive Patent Search enables users to search using plain language text to find public domain concepts and then provides a hyperlinked list of ideas that takes users to the USPTO database for the patent for more information.
