About the Conference

IPR and their protection have gained significant momentum in today’s world. There is a sea change in times since the Act VI of 1856 on the protection of inventions. The Copyright Act, 1957 (as amended by the Copyright Amendment Act 2012) which governs the subject of copyright law in India has been amended six times since 1957 to cater to development in science and technology and protect the authors work.

Here, it is worthwhile to read about the Design Act and Copyright Controversy. In this digital age, the following doctrines are being developed through the judicial pronouncements: moral rights, neighbouring rights and special rights of the author. Further, with the growth of the internet, the challenges relating to music piracy and plagiarism have increased multifold times and have had their adverse effect on the Indian economy.

Though we recognize and respect IPR, somehow, the protection offered has always been incomplete and debatable. The dynamism in the world brought by science, technology, trade, and economic development have posed unprecedented challenges for the effectiveness of IPR protection regime in India.

The National Conference on Changing Dimensions of IPR is organised by Research and Development Cell (R&D) of Asian Law College (ALC), Noida on Jan 4, 2020. This conference aims at an introspect into these issues and challenges and looks forward to unravelling the solutions.
