Intellectual Property Rights: Exploiting Patents at a Cost

Intellectual property refers to the property that is created by an individual or a company, with the exclusivity being recognized under law. The intellectual properties may vary from a book to music and from a symbol or design to invention. Some of the tools of safeguarding the usage of these properties are patents, copyrights, trademarks, industrial design rights and trade secrets. It is the duty of an IPR expert to ensure that the property of his client is not being infringed in any way by others for any purposes.

In India, the concept of protecting the abovementioned rights has traditionally been left to lawyers, but now, this trend is changing. There are a few colleges being set up throughout the country for providing education exclusively in handling cases related to intellectual property rights. These courses find many takers who want to make a career in the highly competitive knowledge market, because hardly any colleges run courses such as this in their programs. Some of the colleges based in India that people who wish to pursue studies in IPR are listed below:

  1. IIT Kharagpur Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law runs a three year LLB program with specialization in IPR, along with a half year Post Graduate diploma in IPR.
  2. Global Institute of Intellectual Property runs PG diploma and certificate programs pertaining to Indian & US patents, IP laws, services & processes.
  3. Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has a Post Graduation IP Diploma which is one year duration and taught via distance mode.
  4. National Law School of India, University of Bangalore also has a distance learning PG Diploma in IPR Law of one year.
