It is a well-known fact that the role of Intellectual Property (IP) protection has expanded at an unprecedented pace during the last two decades.
In the process IP rights have been modified or new provisions have been created in order to cover new areas of Science & Technology, such as Information Technology,Biotechnology, and now service sector.
With this spurt in the R&D activity, the number of patents being filed internationally and in India has also gone up. The filing and litigation in other IPs, such as
Trademarks, Copyrights, Designs etc. are also rising.
