Description
Intellectual Property is specially created and recognised in law inspite of its monopolistic nature, as a result of the transformation of material - based society into a knowledge -based society. This book is an endeavour to introduce the subject of Intellectual Property Rights and the Law relating thereto. It contains a lucid commentary on the emergence of Intellecutal Property Rights (IPR) and the Legal Regime at International level and National level. There are altogether nine chapters in this book which deal with the copyrights, Trade marks, Designs, Traditional knowledge and Geographical Indications of Goods etc. Sincere efforts have been made to update the law, case law as well as the global efforts to protect Intellectual Property Rights. The highlights of this edition are (1) Introduction of a new and comprehensive chapter on Traditional Knowledge (2) Revision of the appendix to incorporate relevant provisions of the new laws like the Biological Diversity Act, 2002 the Information Technology Act, 2000, the Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers' Rights Act 2001, and (3) Inclusion of a very useful glossary of various expressions in the field of IPR. Further all the relevant cases reported up to the end of June 2014 have been discussed at appropriate places. On the whole, this edition represents a complete work on IPRs with many unique features like the discussion on the concept of property, intellectual property, international regime and a very useful appendix, bibliography and list of useful web-sites. This is a humble attempt to demystify and depoliticise the IPRs. This book will be of great use to the students, the law teachers, practitioner of IPR law and also the authorities concerned
