These databases are intended for use by the general public. Patents issued from 1790 through 1975 are searchable only by patent number and current US classifications. Attempts to search those patents by any other fields will result in an error message. US Patent Classification data in the full-text database (Current US Classification) is frequently updated to reflect the most current PTO Master Classification File, and will not necessarily match the classification data which appears on the patent full-page images (i.e., the printed patent) or on the Patent Classification pages. The Issued Patents Full-Text Database contains patent full text as it was printed on the patent on the day of issue.
