Concept Note

Intellectual Property relates to the creation of the human mind which are given statutory protection from the Government. Intellectual Property Rights are awarded in fields such as copyrights, patents, trademarks, geographical indications, plant varieties and farmers’ rights, etc. The process to grant a Patent is Techno-legal in nature. It entails several other technical and scientific issues. Hence it becomes necessary to include technical members for the resolution of IP disputes.

Therefore the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) was established u/s 83 of T M Act 1999, on 15th September 2003, to hear appeals against the decisions of the Registrar under the Trade Marks Act, 1999 and the Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act, 1999. The IPAB was set up for speedy disposal of Intellectual Property disputes by transferring the jurisdiction of High Courts on certain matters to the IPAB. Hence the Webinar wants to understand the role of IPAB in mitigation of Patent Litigation with the expert speakers on the Topic.
