Emerging trends for adopting effective IP strategies to drive and deliver efficiency, innovation and complete brand protection from infringers


For many businesses, intellectual property protects more than just an idea or a concept - it protects genuine business assets that may be integral to the core services of the business and overall long-term viability. Companies of all sizes are at risk of having their unique ideas, products or services infringed upon, even if they are on the other side of the world, making intellectual property protection more important than ever. The legal structure for IPR does reflect the underlying policy orientation and national priorities, which have evolved over time, considering the development needs and international commitments. Intellectual property protection is critical to fostering innovation. The continuous efforts of the government in policy establishment, IT protection, infrastructure, IPR search portals and manpower made this Industry a step ahead.

The IPR Summit 2018 will delve on the aspects of providing meaningful and valuable insights from IP leaders by offering a mix of thought provoking and practical sessions while covering a wide range of topics along with a unique industry networking platform.
