About Centre for IPR and Technology (CIPR&T)

Intellectual Property (IP) is a creation of the mind and it confers the right to the creator by the law towards the exclusive use of his creation. Though this right is granted for a certain period, its exclusive nature of it makes it significant. In India, IP law has undergone a significant change due to TRIPS, which has a direct impact on the legal regime about patents, copyrights, designs, trademarks, geographical indications etc.  There is a close relationship between IPRs and technology. The existing IP and IT laws were amended from time to time to be on par with changes technological changes globally. In recent years Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and Technology Laws emerged as the most important policy instruments. With its growing presence, however, it has also been subjected to intense criticism. Moreover, the structure of the institution itself has undergone periodic changes with the incorporation of newer subject matters into its ambit. The CIPR&T endeavours to become the beacon in the field of Intellectual Property Rights and Technology Law by encouraging the synthesis of knowledge and best practices cutting across academia, practitioners and the research fraternity.
