The objectives of the Awareness course on Intellectual Property Rights are to:
Few important points related to Intellectual Property are:
While inventions may have little that will qualify them as expression of the inventor’s persona, a literary or artistic or musical composition is likely to bear the stamp of the author in a substantial measure. Thus the rationale for IP has to be sought both in the labour angle and the personality angle together, rather than in any of them separetely.
The State and the global IP regime, seeks to strike a balance between interests of the creator of the IP, the interests of the other entrepreneurs and society as a whole. The devices that ensure this balance are: grant of monopoly/exclusive rights generally for a limited period, after which the intellectual creation comes into the public domain; provision for compulsory licensing and even revocation of licence under certain conditions, and making preservation of life, environment, peace, morality as of paramount consideration while granting IPRs.
