The Chair for Intellectual Property Rights of Maharashtra National Law University, Nagpur proposes Three-Day Virtual Workshop on ‘Nuances of Patent Processing’ from October 26 – 28, 2020.

In the changing paradigm of global business, one central force that supports this change and shall regulate more closely in the time to come, is Intellectual Property Laws and Practices. It is therefore important for all Innovation based Bodies to regulate Research and Development duly aligned with an IP profile; to ensure that the amount of resources spent on research is well justified, and allows efficient ‘Intellectual Property Creation & Management’. To achieve this, it is inevitable for each University/Institute to have expertise in processing of Intellectual Property.

Managing of IP includes acquiring of Intellectual Property, managing its use and appropriation of Intellectual property. For all these, two things are important: one is getting property registered under the IP Laws and second, is its protection. Government policies have declared the extension of protection to various intellectual properties with some objectives, for example, Patent is granted to promote progress and prosperity by encouraging technological innovations.

Drafting of necessary applications for grant of protection, is a very vital issue. Many times, though invention qualifies the legal criteria for protection, but some technical flaws in drafting result in its rejection by the Registration office. Thus, it is the need of the hour that the future lawyers have to be very vigilant at this crucial stage. It requires thorough knowledge of drafting and filing of an application. Further, the second stage is protection of intellectual property. Once the inventor starts exploiting the IP rights, it is necessary that the awareness tools must be known to the owner. For that reason, the nuances of filing infringement application play an important role. Practicing lawyers are the best persons in this field who can be said to be the ‘Guardians of Intellectual property’.

This workshop is planned in phased manner and this is the first event. This event is aimed to disseminate knowledge amongst the participants to gain a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of drafting, litigation and related issues of patent.

The Objectives of the Workshop are to aid the participants:

  • To understand the vital concepts of Intellectual Property;
  • To know the process of search and filing of Patent;
  • To acquire the preliminary skills of patent drafting; and,
  • To obtain knowledge about patent litigation.
