“Role of IPR in a Global Economy: Challenges and Issues”

Intellectual Property is the root of the intellectual development of any country. With the robust development of IPR, the old and some of the existing management constructs and approaches would have to change. 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.

Judiciary has not been far behind in contributing to the development of IP rights. 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.
