After the completion of two successful editions of the Certificate Program on Intellectual Property Laws (IP Laws) we now propose to you our third edition of the same. This year’s program structure is designed with the aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of the various laws and contemporary issues related to intellectual property rights.
To give a brief overview of this area of law, anything generated by a person using their intellect and skill is called Intellectual Property. The rights given by the government to such persons over this property are termed as Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). It is a wide concept and includes intellectual activities in various fields such as industry, literature, science, and arts. Copyright, trademark, patent, geographical indications, performers’ rights, broadcasters’ rights are few such intellectual properties recognized in India. These properties are protected by law and any unauthorized reproduction and use of such properties without the permission of the intellectual property holder amounts to a serious offence.
Understanding, recognizing and respecting such rights is of utmost importance as while intellectual property forms a niche part of the law, it is fast emerging as an integral part of business and entrepreneurship. However, new advances in science, arts, and technology continuously outpace the development of law around intellectual property. The Certificate Program has been designed with the objective of not only giving a basic understanding of all forms of intellectual property to the participants, but also familiarizing them with the contemporary trends and current developments in the field.
