Where is it possible to search for a patent?
Most patent offices have free electronic databases allowing the search of patent applications over the Internet, facilitating access to patent information. When there is no comprehensive patent information online, you may access publications. However, given the relative complexity, especially in some technical areas, it is advisable to consult with specialists who have the expertise to advise fully on matters of Industrial Property. Generally these consultancies are conducted by the Office of Technology Information Regarding Patents (in Chile is INAPI).
