Update - April 17, 2011:

Those of you using our Foreign Publication fetching service may have noticed it wasn't working particularly well. This was due to changes on the EPO's servers. We have updated our code and are pleased to report things are working again with Foreign Publication fetches.

Note that there is a limit of 10 (ten) free patent PDF downloads on this site daily (metered on a per IP address basis), with the first five downloaded regularly, and the last five stamped with promotional information for our site (and downloaded more slowly). If your firm or business requires higher volumes of patent PDF downloads, please contact us for subscription information.

For other upcoming changes to our services, we also strongly encourage you to also sign-up for the Patent Fetcher News here.

Thank you for supporting Patent Fetcher.

Foreign Patents/Applications We currently provide access* to all foreign patents and applications for which there are images at the European Patent Office Web site, as a single PDF file. Specifically, publications with the following country code prefixes may be available:
AP AT BA BE BG CA CH CY DD DE DK EE EP ES FI FR GB GR IE IT JP LU MC NL OA PT RO RU SE SU WO

*Note: While you can have this version of the Patent Fetcher site fetch Foreign Patents/Applications and assemble them as a single document on our file server, you may only download these documents from our server via our Pay-As-You-Go Patent Fetcher service at $0.65 per downloaded publication, a fee which covers our bandwidth and local storage costs.

Please note that the format of Foreign Publication numbers must be exactly the same as that used by the EPO's Web site search interface , which generally means just the base publication number. "Kind codes" may only be supplied for EP publications. If a given publication number returns more than one result Patent Fetcher will prompt you to choose an option.

(You can search for U.S. Patents and Applications meeting your criteria on the U.S. PTO Site, and then enter the resulting Patent/SIR/etc. numbers from your search in the field above, one by one. Similarly, you can search for Foreign Patents and Applications meeting your criteria at the European Patent Office site and then enter the resulting numbers here, one by one.)
