Intellectual Property Rights(IPR)

GNITC has established an environment conducive to transforming ideas into products, resulting in patent filings and technology transfer for societal benefit and revenue generation. The institution fosters creativity, research, and provides a conductive atmosphere to support these efforts

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are important for higher education institutions, as they protect the Intellectual Property (IP) of stakeholders created through research and development. The scope of IPR has expanded from just patents to include all types of IP, such as copyright, geographical indications (GI), trademarks, designs, etc., to protect all forms of human creativity in every field. A booming research and innovative teaching approach necessitates Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

The main components of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are:

1.Patents: Protect inventions and improvements to existing inventions, granting the patent holder exclusive rights to use, make, and sell the invention for a certain period.

2.Trademarks: Protect brand names, slogans, logos, and other identifiers that distinguish goods and services in the marketplace, ensuring that only the trademark owner can use them.

3.Copyrights: Protect original works of authorship, such as literary, musical, and artistic works, providing the creator exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, and display the work.

4.Trade Secrets: Protect confidential business information and proprietary knowledge that provide a competitive edge, as long as the information remains secret.

5.Industrial Designs: Protect the aesthetic aspects of an article, including the shape, pattern, and color, ensuring that the design owner has exclusive rights to use and reproduce the design.

6.Geographical Indications: Protect names or signs used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities, reputation, or characteristics inherent to that location.
