Topic: INDIAN TRADEMARK LAWS: ISSUES, OPPORTUNITIES & CAREER PROSPECTS
With the number of trademark filings increasing in India, this brings with itself huge career options for the law students and young law graduates in the sector of the trademark. The recent statistics show that from 2015-16 to 2018-19 the number of trademark applications every year has climbed by 20% from approximately 2.8 lacs to 3.4 lacs; examinations have increased by 26% from 2.6 lacs to 3.3 lacs; the numbers of registrations granted has increased tremendously by 387% from approx. 0.6 lacs to 3.16 lacs and the number of disposals have increased from approx. 1.1 lacs to 5.1 lacs, a jump of 347%.
These statistics show that the Indian IP scenario is going through a sea change when it comes to protection and registration of trademarks. Companies across India and worldwide are filing trademark applications in India aggressively with a view to secure protection of their trademark and diffuse chances of infringement. Therefore, it goes without saying that the renowned IP firms, companies, brand owners are always on the lookout for individuals who understand the trademark regime in India and who can offer quality services for the protection of their brand.
Keeping in mind India’s significantly growing IP regime, FICCI IPR Division has decided to launch an interactive series with the name of “IP TALKS by FICCI ” wherein we will be having overall comprehensive discussions and interactions with stakeholders about the Indian IP regime and issues and opportunities it presents. These sessions will involve deliberations from lawyers, in house counsels, other IP professionals, academicians, and students as well.
IP awareness is the key to open oneself to see the possibilities and the emerging areas that are in continuous need of strong and valid IP guidance. Under our series, we will ask the experts all relevant questions that may come in the mind of a student or an established professional.
