Whooeee! First, Google Patents gave us the painless, rapid-fire way to search patents. Now a site called PAT2PDF will fetch and convert a patent that you have the patent number for to PDF format for easy downloading and printing.
Give it a try with the following patent number 1379236. This finally makes downloading and/or printing a patent as easy as it should have been in the first place! (Hello!! I’m talking to you U.S. Patent Office!!!)
