National Workshop on Intellectual Property Protection in Semiconductor Chips & Products
12th July & 13th July 2006 - A Report
Intellectual Property (IP) has become a key driver for R&D in Science,
Information Technology, Invention Software etc. that dominate the
knowledge society of 21st century. Seamless commerce and Globalization
concepts have brought the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights
(TRIPS) to the fore giving a major focus to IP as a strategic asset.
IP Rights (IPR) has thus become a currency of power widely sought to
protect inventions and new ideas from copying and poaching.
Recognizing the central role IPs play in the modern technologies goods
and services, countries around globe have drawn legal frameworks for
enabling registration of the IPRs. The registrations bestow on the
owner of IPR certain protections and rights for a set period in a
territory. This workshop will be touching on the IP protection regimes
in Semiconductor Chips and Products. The Workshop ideas are applicable
elsewhere too to help own creativity and innovation ideas and design.
In the first day, the exposures at workshop, will impart the overall understanding from basic concepts of IP. National and international IPR regimes, Indian legislation on chip protection and its features, Techno-legal issues in Chip protection, Industrial Experiences in Chip Acts in select countries, Legal issues in filing IPR applications etc.
The Second day of Workshop would dwell on Indian IC Design experiences in R&D and industry, Korean experiences in IC Design education, IC Design Education Initiative from India IEEE EDS Chapter etc. A panel discussion on How to boost IC Design Education will also be featured.
A team of experienced and renowned speakers will be dwelling on various matters of these subjects. The experiences in IP rights will also enable the user gauge an insight into IP Management, Licensing, and Value Audit etc. applicable to both at R&D, Academic and Industrial sectors in fostering future developments.
