This year’s program structure is designed in a more lucid manner with an aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of the various laws relating to intellectual property rights.

It is a wide concept and includes intellectual activities in fields such as industrial, literary, scientific and artistic. Copyright, trademark, patent, geographical indications, performers’ rights, broadcasters’ rights are few such IPRs.
