Intellectual Property is a creation of the mind. Research gives rise to new inventions, creativity, methods and tools. These new inventions and business ideas can be protected through various legal regimes of intellectual property rights, such as patents, design, trademark, copyrights and trade secrets. The workshop will facilitate an understanding of the necessary measures needed to be taken for protecting inventions from a researcher’s point of view and of Indian Intellectual Property Rights laws and their comparison with international treaties. The presentation will cover how to understand patent documents, strategies for filing, patent search and different filing procedures. Relevant case studies in the context of emerging technologies will be used to illustrate these concepts.
