About the Seminar (ISIPR, CL &TK)

Original and well researched papers from academic scholars, faculty members, researchers and students across the globe on any of the themes/sub themes are invited for the presentation at the International Seminar on Interface between Intellectual Property Rights, Competition Law and Traditional Knowledge.

India is rich with biological diversity and associated traditional knowledge (TK). Protection of TK has direct connection with protection of biogenetic resources of each country. India has witnessed many cases of biopiracy involving misappropriation of TK.

Advances in biotechnology ensure that even though traditional agricultural products such as neem, basmati rice or turmeric cannot be patented per se, genetically modified versions – for example, patents for new strain of neem with higher pest resistance, patents based on wound healing properties of turmeric or curcumin’s ability to differentiate cancer cells from normal cells – can be patented.

Sub Themes

1. Interface between IPR and TK: Analysis of global regime

2. TK in India: Efficacy of existing legislative framework to protect TK

3. Need to develop a sui generis system for both defensive and positive protection

4. Interface between IPR and competition law: Conceptual Analysis

5. Abuse of dominance and IPR

6. Competition law and IP law in India
