GetthePatent.com Fee Schedule   Last Updated: July 8, 2006
There is no charge for searching or for the delivery of patent text (HTML) documents. Charges are based solely on the number of unique patent image (CPC) documents that are delivered during the monthly billing cycle.

There is no charge for duplicate deliveries of the same patent image document within a single monthly billing cycle. That is, if you retrieve a particular patent image document multiple times within a single monthly billing cycle, you are only charged for a single patent image document.

A patent image document is considered to be delivered when it is transmitted by our server. This includes transmission via email, batch printing, batch downloading, or direct viewing in a web browser.

Subscription Plans
We offer a number of different subscription plans. Our Usage plan allows you to pay a flat rate per patent with no monthly subscription fees. Alternatively, each of our fee-based subscription plans provide a fixed number of unique patent image documents per month in exchange for a low monthly fee. If you exceed the plan's patent limit in any month, you will be charged a small, per-patent fee for each excess patent. Should your research needs vary over time, you can change your subscription plan from month to month. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

PDF Delivery
You may optionally request patent files in the PDF file format. Due to the extra transmission bandwidth required for the PDF format, there is a surcharge of 2 cents per page for delivery in this format.

File Histories
You may also use the service to order US file histories. The file history can be provided in either bookmarked CPC format or in searchable PDF format. There is a charge of $0.99 per page for file histories in bookmarked CPC format. There is a charge of $1.99 per page for file histories in searchable PDF format.

In exchange for the file history fee, the file history will be made available within your account for a period of 30 days. Once the 30 day period has lapsed, the file history will no longer be available from within your account. Copies of the file history that were saved outside your account (e.g., on your local computer) may continue to be used in perpetuity without additional charges.
