About the Conference

Intellectual Property is the term given to the generation of original intellectual or creative activity. India has become a member of the global patent regime by signing TRIPS and recently the Madrid protocol but awareness and proficiency of the subject is very less.

A huge sum of money is spent on R&D every year while the patents filed in India by locals are only 20% of the total filed patents. Despite efforts from government and industry, international companies and individuals continue to overshadow local inventors with regard to filing patent applications. Of the 43,000 applications filed for patents every year with the India Patent Office of the Controller General of Patents Designs and Trademarks (CGPDTM) each year; just 9,000 are from Indian individuals and companies.
