BIP Patent Attorneys: Searching for Patents on Indian Patent Database (InPASS)

New-to-Me, from BIP Patent Attorneys: Searching for Patents on Indian Patent Database (InPASS). “I recall a time when searching for Indian patents and applications online was almost impossible. Performing a search to identify relevant prior art would mean perusal of each and every weekly gazette published by the Indian patent office. These gazettes, being poorly scanned copies of the bibliographic data, would make patent searching a task in itself and let us not even begin to discuss the patience that was tested. It was a time when even the popular paid databases failed to provide comprehensive data on Indian patents. Today, however, performing a patent search for Indian patents has become fairly easier thanks to InPass, Indian patent advanced search system.”
