Patent Safari is a subscription-based application created to "track, share, manage and get alerted of U.S. Patent reexaminations."[1] The application was created by patent agent Marek Alboszta and systems architect Alexandros Pagidas.[2]

According to a profile of the application on Freshout, functions of Patent Safari include:[3]

  • Tracking patents and their reexaminations
  • Share patents and reexams
  • Add docket notes
  • Download reexam documents from the apllication


A demonstration video of Patent Safari illustrates how the user adds a patent to the "Tracked Patents" section by typing a patent number (or multiple patent numbers separated by spaces) into the "Add Patent" form. The patent documents are added to a list of Tracked Patents, which displays the patent number, first inventor, title, and number of reexams. Users can choose to delete or email the documents in the Tracked Patents list.[4]

Users will receive email alerts for new reexaminations of Tracked Patents. These emails tell users about changes made to the Image File Wrapper and Transaction Histories for the patent document. The user can access the updated File Wrapper/Transaction History by signing into Patent Safari. The users can then download the latest updated documents through Patent Safari.[4]

Users can schedule daily or weekly updates for certain patent documents in their Tracked Patents list.[4]

The interface allows users to drag and drop columns in the Tracked Patents list and view details for inventor names, dates, or reexamination numbers by mousing over data in the columns. Finally, users can edit dockets and add notes to patent documents through the Patent Safari interface.[4]
