In the present era of technology, the existing intellectual property regime has witnessed a significant paradigm shift
with the change in time. Intellectual property protection acts as an important business tool in the hands of innovators, researchers, start-ups, industries, and companies. The advent of new innovations with newer forms of protection gives rise to effective competition in the market but at the same time leads to various debatable issues at the heart of the existing form of protection. The conference will also provide an insight into the momentum created by the Atma-nirbhar Bharat and Make in India on the intellectual property regime which has opened up unique opportunities for individuals, start-ups, MSMEs, and entrepreneurs to enter into the arena of entrepreneurship to form a self-reliant nation.
The objective of this conference is to provide a platform for academicians, professionals, researchers, and students to
discuss and provide a solution to various key issues and operational challenges raised by changing dimensions of
existing intellectual property regime. The conference will provide valuable insight into the various challenges faced
