Monthly Document Credits


Say Goodbye to PACER

RPX Insight eliminates the need to go to PACER to access district court filings. It provides all district court complaints free of charge, in addition to PTAB and ITC documents, as well as patent documents. All other district court documents are charged at a 10¢ per-page rate, up to the PACER maximum per document. You will never be charged twice for viewing the same document. Document credits never expire; they are carried forward from month-to-month and are exercised only after all monthly subscription credit is applied.

Quickly find out whether a patent has been litigated (and if so, against which companies, products, and services) and whether it has been challenged before the PTAB. And of course, all the related district court cases and PTAB petitions are linked to their respective detail page, so you don’t have to spend any time finding them.

In addition to bibliographic information, such as the patent’s abstract, claims, citations, and specifications, the patent page also includes the complete assignment history and links to assignment documents filed with the USPTO.

RPX Insight also irons out data discrepancies related to the original assignee of the patent to tell you the correct “Sponsoring Entity” under which the invention covered by the patent was developed.
