When searching for an asset or entity, enter a search term and select the category you are searching for.
The search bar will guess which category the search term is targeting, but you may need to select another category.

If you're looking for the patents or assignment activity associated with a company, search for the company and then select the patents or assignment reports from the company report page.
If searching for ptab dockets associated with a particular judge, search for the judge.
3 Search is designed to handle names and document identification numbers
While you can search for patents and applications by title keywords, the search facility is not geared towards finding prior art or exploring a subject matter field.
