The Flame of Creativity
Award
The Raj Anand Moot Court Competition is a premier moot court competition on IP laws and a prestigious one among IP enthusiasts across law schools in India. The competition, instituted to commemorate Late Raj Anand, aims to promote IP Laws. This annual event started in 1998 is currently in its 13th edition.
The competition has a reputation for its innovative and complex moot problem on contemporary issues in IP law. This year’s problem too promises to be an exciting one simulating a hypothetical dispute between a disease-free state of Valenezia and a nuclear disaster stricken Trashen. A Tsunami hits the island state of Valenezia which forces them trade their unique and secretly guarded healing techniques through their innovative CIPCracker, a computer program developed to enable a person to acquire skill, knowledge or intelligence of another human being. You can read the entire problem here.
Sixteen of India’s best law schools are invited this year to compete for the ‘The Flame of Creativity’ award. The winning team also gets to keep a rolling trophy  (see image above), designed and created by sculptor and poet Amar Nath Sehgal. Several eminent lawyers such as Harish Salve and Arun Jaitley have judged the competition in previous years.
The competition will take place at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi on August 31 and September 01, 2013. For further enquiries about the competition, please contact [email protected].

    If I recall correctly, wasn’t there a famous copyright case relating to Amar Nath Sehgal? I think it had to to do with moral rights.
