About Intellectual Property Rights Attorney Association
Our objectives include promoting and encouraging the innovation of the IPRs, to safeguard IPRs and to make people aware of the IPR Products and Goods registered under IP Law.
What do we seek?
We are seeking dedicated and research-inclined law students across India to aid us in our research project. The project deals with identification of local products and goods (belonging to the students’ home state or place of residence) to further the objective of identifying goods and products that may be deemed as Geographical Indications.
According to the Geographical Indications of Goods Act, 1999 a Geographical Indication means an indication which identifies such goods as agricultural, natural or manufactured goods as originating, or manufactured in the territory or country, or a region or locality in that territory, where a given quality, reputation or other characteristic of such good is essentially attributable to its geographical origin.
Some examples of famous registered Geographical Indications include Darjeeling Tea (West Bengal), Basmati Rice (Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand and parts of Uttar Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir), Assam Tea (Assam), Kancheepuram Silk (Tamil Nadu), Kangra Tea (Himachal Pradesh), Mysore Sandalwood Soap (Karnataka), Malabar Pepper (Kerala), Blue Pottery of Jaipur (Rajasthan), Kutch Embroidery (Gujarat), Feni (Goa) and Nagpur Orange (Maharashtra). We are looking for similar non-registered goods and products in your region.
We invite students to an online research internship with our association, where the students will aid in researching on such goods.
An example of the details that we seek would be specification of the goods or product, description of the goods, geographical area of production and map, historical records, method of production and uniqueness. Bear in mind, these products or goods should be indigenous to the area of your residence or your permanent address, as this will enable you to do relevant research.
This is a unique research opportunity for students as every contribution will be important as it is towards a not-for-profit purpose.
You should be a student in any of the law colleges in the country. This is also open to college students of other disciplines, research scholars and working professionals.
Certificate and Stipend
We will grant you a Research Certificate and a Recommendation Letter. As we are a not-for-profit organisation, the Certificate we provide can be used for your college’s requirement for NGO internships. Students who contribute significantly will be eligible for a variable cash prize.
This research internship is purely online and we will primarily interact by means of email and phone calls. So it is perfect for students in college and people not willing to shift their location for research purposes.
