THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The traditional systems and the under-privileged sections of the society should be made aware of the scope and significance of Intellectual property Rights (IPR) and patent laws, said Prof V N Rajasekharan Pillai, executive vice president, Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE).

He was speaking after inaugurating a two-day workshop on ‘Intellectual Property Rights and Patent Law’, organised by the National Institute of Personnel Management (NIPM), Thiruvananthapuram chapter, and KSCSTE.

The knowledge and skills available with the ordinary man were several times more than that associated with the so-called educated section. Dr V P Balagangadharan, scientist, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, stressed the need for protecting IPR.
