Google To Expand Its Patent Search Service

Google will open 11 new national patent offices

Google is pushing further forward with its patent search service, announcing that it will soon be including 11 more national patent offices. When it was launched 10 years ago, the service only worked with patents filed with the US, European and World patent offices. However, Google has announced that it plans the service's largest expansion so far, aiming to introduce patents filed with the UK, Japan, South Korea, France and many other countries. Meanwhile, EU Parliament member, Julia Reda, has had her say on the search giant's potential strategy following the EU ruling to allow publishers to charge Google for reproducing parts of articles on its news page. Reda said that “publishers who want to continue to show up in Google search results will give Google a free license and [Google's smaller rivals] won't get a free license”.
