About CIPR

The Centre for Intellectual Property Rights [CIPR] is one of the 16 different centres of excellence at the National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi. Since its inception, it has been at the forefront of promoting research and education in the field of IPR.

Sports And Intellectual Property Rights enjoy an inseparable connection. As companies, brands and leagues look to make the most out of every single element in sports, intellectual property rights associated with them goes a long way in making it happen.

The centre seeks papers for its book on themes relating to Sports, E-Sports and their interplay with IPR. The publication aims to call for and gather papers primarily from teachers, academicians, researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders.


  1. The Importance of Trademarks for Sports Clubs and Leagues
  2. Patents and Sports Equipment
  3. The Impact of Counterfeit Sporting Goods and Sportswear
  4. Personality Rights Among Sportspersons
  5. Broadcasting and Media Rights for Sports Events
  6. Piracy of Live Broadcasting Sports Events: Unauthorized Streaming
  7. The Need for Legislative Intervention to Protect the IP Involved in E-sports
  8. Streaming of E-sports Gameplay and Copyrights
  9. Ownership of IP in E-sports: Publisher or Gamer
  10. The Cheatbot Complication – An Infringement of Copyright?

Note: These themes are only suggestive and not exhaustive.
