Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is the next milestone in services sector revolution that’s being engineered by the middle class, said P Vanangamudi, Vice-Chancellor, Tamil Nadu Dr Ambedkar Law University.
Delivering a lecture on World Intellectual Property Day 2014 at Quaid-E-Millath Government College for Women, Vanangamudi said that the State should take adequate measures to encourage patents and innovations.
He said that the younger generation and the scientific community were unaware of the importance of trademarks and the Copyrights Act.
Stressing the need for India to emerge as the leader among the Asian nations on intellectual property rights, Vanangamudi said they should take the lead in promoting the same.
He said that there is an urgent need to incentivise information on patents and create a conducive atmosphere. Later, Vanangamudi released a journal and inaugurated an exhibition.
P Sanjai Gandhi, president, IPR Attorney Association and Additional Government Pleader, Madras High Court and Kunaseelan Nadarajah, Consul (labour), office of the Consulate General of Malaysia in Chennai, were also present on the occasion.
