MHRD IPR Chair, NUJS in association with The IP Think Tank is organizing an International Webinar on “Trade Secret as a Momentous Asset” on 12th December 2020 at 2:30 PM (IST).

About the Event

Trade secrets are a very important part of any IP portfolio. It is no exaggeration to say that virtually every business possesses trade secrets, regardless of whether the business is small-medium, or large.

Trade secrets are important, but oftentimes an invisible component of a company’s IP portfolio of assets. However, trade secrets can also be the crown jewels within the portfolio.

The laws governing trade secrets have been enhanced in many key jurisdictions in recent times. The number of trade secret disputes is increasing. There is growing interest in intangible assets including trade secrets by the tax authorities. Collaborative or open forms of innovation by their very nature involve the sharing of IP, and in many instances, this IP is in the form of valuable business confidential information (i.e. trade secrets).
