Jinfo Report

Tweet about this item on Twitter


Minesoft PatBase is an award-winning global patent database used by intellectual property professionals who rely on it for its business-critical patent information. It has undergone quite a few changes since we last reviewed the product a few years ago. Two notable changes include its analytics tool and the recent partnership with Darts-ip, which will have a positive effect on the available content.

With over 50,000 users worldwide, including patent-litigating leading law firms, it also claims to be the first commercial patent database to offer non-Latin search capabilities since 2008.
