|Abstract:||The current changes in legal and administrative framework of patents and other forms of intellectual property at global and national level have brought changes in organizational and individual attitude towards protection and continuous monitoring of IPRs generated by them. These changes also brought out economy and efficiency in generation of technology or intellectual worth. The latest probing technique such as patent searching has been demonstrated as one of the most effective ways to attain these objectives. This paper also describes constraints and opportunities in conducting patent search using free Internet websites EPO and USPTO with the illustrative analysis of medicinal plants of India.|
