One Day Expert Talk on IPR
The Intellectual Property Rights(IPR) seminar was organized in our campus that boosted us to learn more in future. To enhance the skills of the entrepreneurs we would like to extend the seminar further so that we can expertise our knowledge into filing patents and utilize it further for research work.
Intellectual property rights refers to the general term for the assignment of property rights through patents, copyrights and trademarks. These property rights allow the holder to exercise a monopoly on the use of the item for a specified period. It also includes other types of rights such as publicity rights, moral rights, and rights against unfair competition.
IP law aims at safeguarding creators and other producers of intellectual goods and services by granting them certain time- limited rights to control the use made of those productions.The main purpose of intellectual property law is to encourage the creation of a wide variety of intellectual goods. Artistic works like music and literature, as well as some discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs can all be protected as intellectual property.
Intellectual property law has evolved over centuries. It was not until the 19th century that the term “intellectual property” began to be used, and not until the late 20th century that it became commonplace in the majority of the world. To achieve this, the law gives people and businesses property rights to the information and intellectual goods they create, usually for a limited period of time. Because they can then profit from them, this gives economic incentive for their creation.
The intangible nature of intellectual property presents difficulties when compared with traditional property like land or goods. Unlike traditional property, intellectual property is indivisible – an unlimited number of people can “consume” an intellectual good without it being depleted.
Additionally, investments in intellectual goods suffer from problems of appropriation – a landowner can surround their land with a robust fence and hire armed guards to protect it, but a producer of information or an intellectual good can usually do very little to stop their first buyer from replicating it and selling it at a lower price. Balancing rights so that they are strong enough to encourage the creation of intellectual goods but not so strong that they prevent their wide use is the primary focus of modern intellectual property law.
These rights do not apply to the physical object in which the creation may be embodied but instead to the intellectual creation as such. IP is traditionally divided into two branches: “industrial property and copyright”.
To create awareness and provide guidance to academic and non academic staff, students, scholars, and outside agencies on the practices and the rules to encourage the creation of a wide variety of intellectual goods within the frame work of the IPR policy of the institute.
To enhance the skills of the entrepreneurs we would like to extend our knowledge so that we can expertise our knowledge into filing patents and utilize it further for research work and to develop an attitude compatible with the educational mission of the institute.
