Here’s a List of All the Products/Services Being Eliminated

Changes to Patent Search

From the Blog Post:

We’re redirecting the old Patent Search homepage to google.com to make sure everyone is getting the best possible experience for their patent searches. Over the past few months, we’ve been making updates and improvements to the Patent Search functionality on google.com—not only are you able to search the same set of U.S. patents with the same advanced search options, the new experience loads twice as fast as the old Patent Search homepage, contributes to a unified search experience across Google…

One More Time:

  • Run a Google web search and then narrow to only patents by selecting More–>>Patents located in the left column.
