Patent Data. After patent application information is recorded with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the records and associated documents can be inspected by the public and are not confidential, except for documents that are sealed under secrecy orders. Records open to the public are searched by users for the purpose of determining ownership for other property rights with respect to patents. Since Patent Express synchronizes its data with the publicly available USPTO information, we recommend making any data changes with the USPTO directly. Our website is updated regularly to reflect the USPTO data. Patent Express can assist with Assignment, Agency and Incorporation services to help mask public record information at the USPTO.
