Concept Note

Intellectual Property (IP) is the fuel that powers the engine of prosperity, fostering invention and innovation. The increasing significance of intangible assets in the global economy is forcing business organizations to actively manage their IPas a key driver for building and sustaining their competitive advantage and achieving superior performance.

Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) provides for the right to benefit from the protection of moral and material interests resulting from the authorship of scientific, literary or artistic productions, which is otherwise known as the Intellectual Property Right (IPR) of a person. Intellectual Property Rights are the rights given to persons over the creations of their minds: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names and images used in commerce. They usually give the creator an exclusive right over the use of his/her creation for acertain period of time.

The importance of Intellectual Property was first recognised in the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property (1883)and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works (1886).

Both the treaties are administered by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)and India is a member to both. Besides these Conventions, India is also a member of other important WIPO-administered Treaties and Conventions relating to IPR. In the year 1994 an agreement on Trade- Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) emerged from the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations and the final act of these negotiations created the World Trade Organisation (WTO). India has been a WTO member since 1 January, 1995 and is also a signatory to the TRIPS agreement of WTO.

 It is true that Intellectual Property is the root of intellectual development of any country. With the robust development of IPR, the old and some of the existing management constructs and approaches are required to undergo amendments from time to time. From striking a balance between IP rights protection and public policy to promoting IP rights education, the Indian legislature has made efforts to implement better IP rights enforcement and protection through various legislations like The Trade Marks Act,1999,The Patents Act,1970 (as amended in 2005), The Copyright Act, 1957, The Designs Act, 2000, The Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection)Act, 1999, The Semiconductor Integrated Circuits Layout DesignAct, 2000, The Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers' Right Act, 2001,and even The Information Technology Act, 2000. Litigation regarding trademarks, copyrights, and patents has set new precedents, with the Indian courts adopting international principles and rulings to protect IP rights in order to deter infringers. There are certain issues prevailing in the domain of IPR, for instance, the amendment of Patents Act in the year 2005 does not allow the granting of patent for inventions involving new forms of a known substance unless it differs significantly in properties with regard to efficacy, another issue is of Compulsory Licencing (CL) for the foreign investors in India which has impacted India EUFTA negotiations.

Although India has made a number of changes in its IPR regime to increase efficiency and has also gained a hike in the Global Innovation Index ranking, still it needs to go a long way in improving its IPR regime on a global scale.
