Research & IPR

God has gifted a wonderful thing called brain to human beings. With this wonderful thing, human beings created many new things and developed new ideas. The result of this creativity is new inventions, scientific innovation and many new products. In today's competitive world it has become essential to safeguard our traditional knowledge and innovative ideas. The new ideas or inventions are recognized as Intellectual property. There is always danger of copying or misusing the knowledge or new ideas. In order to protect the intellectual property of individuals various laws are passed. Intellectual Property is an umbrella term which encompasses many concepts such as Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, and Geographical Indications etc. But it has been observed that people are not aware of importance of these essential rights. In every sector and in every part of life these rights are very much essential.
