National Seminar on Role of Intellectual Property Rights in Technology Transfer and Economic Growth

Nehru Memorial Law PG College has called for papers and is conducting national seminar on the Role of Intellectual Property Rights in Technology Transfer and Economic Growth: Prospects and Challenges.

The poorly equipped intellectual property (IP) bar and limited juristic understanding of IP laws call for a fair balance between the interests and rights of intellectual labourers on the one hand and imperatives of rapid creativeness and inventiveness in Indian knowledge-based liberalized economy. It pervades all sectors of economy and is increasingly becoming important for ensuring competitiveness of the enterprises in the form of patents; trademarks; geographical indications; industrial designs; layout-designs (Topographies) of integrated circuits; plant variety protection and copyright, undisclosed information, trade secrets, and traditional knowledge. As far back in 1956, Justice RajagopalAyyangar's Report lamented that ‘the patents are taken not in the interests of the economy of the country granting the patent or with a view to manufacture there but with the main objective of protecting an export market from competition from rival manufacturers particularly those in other parts of the world’.
