Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) is that field of law which seeks to reward and protect the creation of the intellectual labour and skill of individuals. With the ever-increasing needs of the society, there is a constant requirement of creative thinking to address the needs and wants of mankind.
Intellectual Property Rights was hence created with the objective of promoting creativity and to reward the creator with economic and moral achievements. But with the changing environment in industrial and economic sectors, the subject matter of IPR changed from protection of creativity to economic exploitation of the tangible property derived from an intangible idea.
