Concept Note for the Event
Human intellect is the creator of Intellectual Property with the investment of labour skill and judgement, generating rights in the property, known as intellectual property Rights. It’s an exclusive right granted to the creators in their creations. Intellectual Property Rights such as Patents, Copyrights, Trademark, Industrial deigns, Geographical Indications, Trade secrets, Layout designs for Integrated Circuits, Traditional Knowledge, Plant Variety and Farmers rights, Biotechnology, and agriculture, etc. It is a legal concept which refers to creations of the mind for which exclusive rights are recognized. Intellectual property rights provide an incentive to the creator to develop his/her creation and to share it with other people for the development of the society.
IPRs play a very important role in the development of individual and the society. IPRs protects and encourages the creators for innovation and economic gain. It also leads to a healthy competition among creators and users, which ultimately leads to the progress of the society. The transfer of technology is important for developmental research. It is helpful in the solution to global challenges in the field of alternate energy resources, new products to the consumers and pharmaceutical development. The agriculture and biotechnology are the part and parcel of IPRs. The industries are interwoven with intellectual properties. It is necessary to stimulate economic growth and encourage fair trading, leads to employment, trade and commerce for economic and social development. Of course, it requires effective enforcement mechanism for the protection of their rights.
Keeping all these aspects in mind, The Union Cabinet has approved the National Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy on 12th May, 2016 that shall lay the future roadmap for IPRs in India. The Policy recognises the abundance of creative and innovative energies that flows in India, and the need to tap into and channelize these energies towards a better and brighter future for all. It views IPRs holistically, taking into account all disciplines across and thus aims to create and exploit synergies between all forms of intellectual property (IP), concerned statutes and agencies. It sets in place an institutional mechanism for implementation, monitoring and review. It aims to incorporate and adapt global best practices to the Indian scenario.
Among the National IPR Policies 2016, Human Capital Development (HCD) is significant benchmark objectives which encompasses all the other objectives.
