ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The concept of global economy is fast expanding and the foundation and
focus of business have shifted from National Scenario to I
nternational
Scenario, wherein the Geographical boundaries are disappearing for making
business a ‘Global Market Place’. As a result the paradigm of world business
is changing and one central force that is supporting this change and would
regulate more clo
sely in time to come is International Intellectual Property
Laws & Practices, particularly the Patent Regime. Therefore understanding of
International Patent Laws and Practices for regulating and protecting one’s
business, world over, becomes critical for

the business growth.


National Patent Laws & Practices differ substantially between the Nations, in
terms of Grant, Scope, Protection and Enforcement mechanisms and more
importantly the standards for protection and enforcement as applied by the
National
judiciary often vary widely, among countries. Therefore the
companies particularly the Industries dealing

in
Pharma, Biotech, Chemicals,
Ay
u
rveda, Herbal, Traditional Art and Natural Product must have reasonable
and fair assessment to International Patent
Scenario for which they need to
understand broadly International Laws & Practices. At the same time, the
exploitation of Intellectual Property has become an Industry in itself
particularly the Patent Portfolio
s
, as the cost of development and protection
o
f Patent
in
Pharma, Biotech and Chemicals is enormous, particularly
obtaining the grant of Patents and their Protection thereafter as a necessity,
either as pro
-
active or as defensive strategy. Therefore there is
critical

need
to understand
important
issu
es such as identity of invention and priority,
types of claims, formulation of set of claims, drafting and prosecution for
patent dealing to successfully evaluate and enforce patent right and scope of
protection as the suffering from the loss of patent cou
ld cause serious blow.
That is why the number of major “Patent Wars” are growing between
competitors and contemporaries, besides growing threat from international
exploiters.

Litigation covering Pharma/Biotech/Chemicals /
