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.

Thank you for supporting Patent Fetcher.
