The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has a great deal of information available to the public concerning the obtaining and maintenance of patents, as well as search facilities for issued patents and published patent applications. The Office does not offer legal advice.

Google also maintains a large database of patents, as well as keyword search facilities.

If you need to download a U.S. patent or patent application publication, a little website called pat2pdf will make a PDF document for you as needed for free.
