ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Intellectual Property is the product of mind, which emanates primarily from human intellect, for example, inventions, publications and other scholarly works. These proprieties can be protected under the provisions of law through Copy Rights, Trade Marks, Patents, Plant Variety Protection/ Plant Breeders Rights, Geographical Indicators, Lay outs and Designs and Undisclosed Information Provisions. Of late Protection of Plant varieties and Farmers Rights Act, 2001 has also been implemented to protect the plant varieties developed by farmers.
The provisions under law have been defined to protect the IPR’s under various categories, and to check their infringements. In the economic competitive world numerous cases of IPR infringements have been known globally. The offenders create ways and means to invent new trends of infringements. Therefore, the IPR’s law has to be dynamic, vibrant and well defined to check the emerging trends of infringement. The proposed National Conference is therefore based on the need and scope of law provisions to protect the IPR’s. There are many issues that need to be discussed to achieve the objectives of the Intellectual Property Laws. With this background, the Faculty of Law is organizing one-day National Seminar, so as to foster awareness, innovations and knowledge in the field of intellectual property rights and their infringements – law perspectives
