Emerging Trends in IPR: India\'s position in the world in a comparative outlook with US, UK and EU.
India is recording a tremendous growth annually. With Companies investing more in innovations and branding, India is becoming a hub for IP transactions. However, are we meeting the international requirements? Is our legal system, corporate structure and administrative governance sufficient to welcome this upsurge with gusto? An interactive seminar, where great minds from India and across the globe will share their views and debate on IPRS in India today, which may pave way for ground breaking exchange of ideas and may pave way for much needed reforms.
Intellectual property (IP) rights, which include patents, trademarks and copyrights, have long been a greatly debated area of the law, as they deal with the infringement and copying of something as intangible as \"ideas\". As India has risen as an emerging market over the past two decades, a rapidly increasing number of patent and trademark applications within the country, have made this a hot button issue domestically as well, as is seen by the legal battles over the patents for Turmeric and Neem, or the plagiarism accusations between domestic and international film industries as the Indian media and entertainment sector grows.
Besides the obvious increased exposure to and networking opportunities with a corporate fraternity that includes leading legal firms and IP rights authorities, the benefits of attending are several. As a participant, you will get to:
Stay abreast of key developments in intellectual property rights.
Hear from the enforcement authorities in key jurisdictions, for direct insights into enforcement policy and strategy.
