About IPR Law:
IPR or intellectual Property rights refers to a set of legal rights granted to individuals or entities for protecting their creations or inventions resulting from intellectual or creative efforts from infringement. Intellectual property includes intangible assets such as inventions, artistic and literary works, symbols, designs, and brand names. The most common types of intellectual property rights include patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and industrial designs.
Kinds of Intellectual Property Rights:
Patents: Patents grant inventors exclusive rights to their inventions, and provide the right to prevent others from making, using, selling, or importing the patented invention without the inventor’s permission. They are granted for a limited period, usually 20 years from the date of filing.
Copyrights: Copyrights protect original artistic and literary works, such as books, music, films, paintings, computer software, and architectural designs, and grants the creator exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, display, perform, and modify their works. Copyright protection lasts for the lifetime of the author plus a certain number of years after their death (60 years).
Trademarks: Trademarks protect distinctive signs, symbols, logos, names, or phrases used to identify and distinguish goods or services of one business from those of others. Trademark owners have exclusive rights to use and protect their marks, and they can prevent others from using similar marks that may cause confusion among consumers.
Trade Secrets: Trade secrets refer to confidential and valuable business information that provides a competitive advantage. They include formulas, manufacturing processes, customer lists, marketing strategies, and other non-public information. Unlike patents or copyrights, trade secrets are not publicly disclosed and rely on maintaining their secrecy. Trade secret protection can be indefinite as long as the information remains confidential.
Industrial Designs: Industrial designs protect the unique visual aspects and aesthetic features of a product, such as shape, configuration, pattern, or color, that appeal to the eye, and they prevent unauthorized copying or imitation of the visual appearance of a product, often for a limited period of time.
Geographical Indications: Geographical indications (GIs) identify products originating from a specific geographical region, which possess qualities, reputation, or characteristics attributable to that location, and they protect the reputation and distinctiveness of regional products, such as wines, cheeses, textiles, or handicrafts, by preventing unauthorized use of the geographical indication by others.
Plant Varieties: Plant variety protection is granted to new plant varieties that are distinct, uniform, stable, and have undergone extensive testing. Plant breeders are granted exclusive rights over the production, sale, and distribution of the protected variety.
