Jaipur-based university organizes workshop on Intellectual Property Rights
In the current technological age, Intellectual Property (IP) as intangible and perceptible creations of products of the human mind or intellect, have picked up extraordinary pace. Consequently, intellectual property rights in terms protection of trademarks, patent designs, models etc., as well as safeguard of copyright have assumed importance.

"The batteries of every Indian including consumers, producers, distributors and traders need to be charged with awareness of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs). Still we have miles to go in IPRs awareness and converting patents as a business proposition. Just filing patents and getting patents are not sufficient, opined Professor M.M. Goel, Vice –Chancellor, Jagan Nath University here today while addressing the teachers and students here today in a  workshop organized by Institutional Innovation Cell (IIC).

Dr. Abhishek Tiwari, Department of Law, Rajasthan University, Jaipur, delivered a special lecture on 'Intellectual Property Rights : Concept and Emerging Issues'.

"The IPR Policy of Jagan Nath University, Jaipur is available on the university website which shares 50 percent of the cost of filing the patent, copy right and design by any teacher of the university, told the Vice Chancellor in a release.

There is strong case for the simplification of the procedures, reducing the time and fees for getting the research, idea, design and product patented online in India, said Professor Goel. The emergence of trade related intellectual property rights (TRIPS) under World Trade Organization (WTO) has been increasing in all the sectors of the Indian economy having implications both positive and negative, believes the VC.

Prof. P.N. Kalla, Dean Faculty of Science, Prof. G.R. Choudhary, Prof.S.L. Sharma, Prof. M.C. Bohra encourage the gathering. Mr. Sudhanshum Mathur, Covener of IIC address the inaugural session and Dr. Ranjeeta Soni, President IIC delivered vote of thanks.
