Training on Intellectual Property Law


The objective of this course in intellectual property law is to encourage the creativity of the human mind for the benefit of all and to ensure that the benefits arising from exploiting a creation benefit the creator. The fundamental purpose of property rights, and their fundamental accomplishment, is that they eliminate destructive competition for control of economic resources. Well-defined and well-protected property rights replace competition by violence with competition by peaceful means. The main objective of IPR is to create public awareness about the benefits of intellectual property among all sections of society.

Every work of intellectual property contains certain creative elements. If you're a creative or intellectual person, the proximity to art, invention, and literature may appeal to you. As things stand now, the two horsemen of IP law are technology and media.

Emerging technologies such as solar, 5G, biotech, automated transportation, e-commerce, fintech, and food technology are driving significant growth in the technology sector. For the past ten years, media has been the fastest growing industry on the planet, and it is expected to continue to develop rapidly in the future, thanks to the ubiquitous Smartphone and internet connection. Both of these industries rely heavily on intellectual property. Not only do these businesses generate a lot of work in terms of patent, copyright, and trademark registration, but they also generate a lot of work in terms of licensing, franchising, IP assignment, IP prosecution, and IP enforcement around the world. So, students inclined towards arenas like these are in a win-win situation!
