Chanakya National Law University is organizing a one day National Seminar on “Intellectual Property Rights: Emerging Issues and Challenges” which focuses on creating a nation-wide conversation providing an opportunity to students, academicians, law professionals and all other stakeholders to put forward their research and share their knowledge on wide range of topics relating to Intellectual Property Rights and related subjects.
Intellectual Property Rights has been high on the agenda of the policymakers these days and there has been a wide and ongoing debate on the nature and scope of these rights. WIPO has defined these rights as rights accruing from creations of mind. But, the value of Intellectual Property does not lie merely in creation and development rather in its commercialization. Intellectual Property is a powerful commercial asset whose commercialization is yet to be fully developed in India.
Though, Indian Law has travelled a very long way in providing protection to different kinds of Intellectual Property creations; the condition and circumstances of gaining protection and commercializing these rights remain vulnerable.
The primary reason behind this is lack of awareness and the cumbersome process of getting protection to these rights which has led to numerous incidents of plagiarism, stealing of traditional knowledge of local communities, amongst others. Large scale schemes and programs spreading awareness among people including communities and students is the need of the hour.
