|Title:||Patenting in Saffron|
|Abstract:||<smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="country-region"><smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="place"> Saffron has been cultivated for thousands of years to be used in medicines, perfumes, and dyes and as a wonderful flavouring agent for foods and beverages. The present study examines the patenting activity in saffron using different databases, namely, US patent database, PCT database, database of EPO, Japanese patent database, INPADOC database, and Ekaswa-A and Ekaswa-B patent application database maintained by TIFAC. The patenting activity was found to be maximum in China, followed by Japan, Germany, Spain, Canada and Europe. Each country has evolved its own niche. </smarttagtype></smarttagtype>|
