Download US Patents as PDF

Google Patents added a button that lets you download the PDF version of a patent. The option is available from the overview page and in the sidebar, when you browse the patent. Now you don't have to rely on other sites that fetched the documents and converted them to PDF, but didn't have a very good search.

Why should you read patents, you may ask? Well, you could find interesting details about Michael Jackson's special shoes that allowed him "to lean forwardly beyond his center of gravity", the design of the Statue of Liberty or an advanced state of the art movie theater.
