ABSTRACT

All innovative products need to have the potential for protection under one or more intellectual property regimes. The intangible intellectual property rights (IPR) give exclusive rights to the creator for their creation. These rights boost innovative thinking and research, which provide recognition and economic benefits to the creator. However, the lack of knowledge about IPR is the main hitch with developing countries like India. Lacking off IPR knowledge, foreigners steal our resources and ideas and give provision for biopiracy. This article provides the basic information about various types of IPRs viz., patents, trademarks, and geographical indications, industrial designs, copyrights, trade secrets, layout designs, protection of new plant varieties, etc., with basic information about the need and method of getting the same. Each of which consists of a distinct set of rights.

Material such as sound recordings (including CDs, tapes, or cassettes), cinematograph films (including videos), television and good broadcasts, and published editions of works are all automatically protected under a separate set of provisions.
