    for Indian Companies
  • Not possible from 2005 onwards
  • Introduction of new products curtailed
  • Increased competition in the off-patent products
  • Transfer of technology, Technology upgradation
    and upscaling required

8
Impact.. Contd..
  • Era of protected market over
  • IPR would eliminate unfair advantage
  • Survival of the Fittest (in production,
    marketing, technology)
  • Manufacturing may migrate to low cost but quality
    sources
  • Indian SMEs are in a race the race is on
  • The necessity is to be competitive

9

    well as Innovation
  • India has the Potential to emerge as a major RD
    and Contract Manufacturing hub
  • Four ingredients for Outsourcing
  • Culture of Entrepreneurship and Innovations

10
  • It is going to be the Knowledge Economy

  • Culture and Entrepreneurship as well as
    Innovation will be imparted
  • Skilled and Trained Manpower would be created
  • Is it happening ? Can it happen ?
  • What would be the role of Industry and Government
    ?

11
The China Case
  • Chinas Economic Growth has been rapid
  • Partly due to entry in WTO in 2001
  • However, it had poor record of IPR
  • Implementation of TRIPS, thus, was a condition by
    WTO

12
China Case
  • Now, however,
  • Increased research funding at Chinese Academic
    Institutions
  • Research output focuses on Patents rather than
    number of Articles published in International
    Journals

13
China Case
  • Sharp increase in Patent Activity by China
    Academic Institutions attributed to
  • Complying to TRIPS agreement
  • Large increase in research expenditure due to
    growth of economy
  • Overhauling of IPC Policy and legislation
  • Increased Emphasis on the commercialization of
    Research at Academic Institutions

14
India The Factors Responsible
  • General consensus that Protection of IP is kept
    at low profile
  • This is compared to not only Developed countries
    but also some developing countries
  • Lack of awareness of Patents
  • Role in protecting an invention
  • Importance
  • Economic Value
  • At all levels

15
INDIA The Factors
  • Further,
  • Scant Resources
  • Cumbersome and time consuming Procedure (So far)
  • Poor access to information and data
  • So far, almost non-existent Patent Culture
  • No Patent-related subject in curriculum in basic
    sciences, engineering, other applied science
  • Young graduates with minimum knowledge of IPR
  • Insufficient patent drafting knowledge

16
IPR Indian AcademiaThe Things are set to change
  • India has adopted the IPR/TRIPS
  • Required changes in Policy being done
  • IPR Protection really would happen
  • IPR-related subjects being introduced
  • Awareness increasing
  • Government Programmes/Drives
  • Self-driven initiatives
  • Resources ? The Real Issue

17
The Public Private Partnership (PPP)
  • CSIR has designed a unique PPP system
  • It is called New Millenium Technology Leadership
    Initiative (NMTLI)
  • Involves 65 Sector companies
  • 160 institutions and universities
  • Presently emphasis on Drugs Pharma RD
    Partnership.

18
Generation of Intellectual Property
  • Before IP protection, must generate IP
  • Institutions have to play a great role here
  • Balanced system of recognition and rewards
  • Structured in-house and external training
    programs
  • Combination of scientific, legal and commercial
    aspects

19
Skills Required
  • Skills in filing, reading, exploiting patents
  • Interpreting and analyzing techno-legal of
    business information
  • Monitoring national and international database
  • Finding out weakness in competitors Patents
  • Drafting a fool-proof patent
  • Finding niche opportunities

20
The Need
  • Manpower planning for IPR protection a priority
  • IPR must be made a compulsory subject in law
    schools
  • Engineering and technology courses should have
    required orientation
  • A number of Patent Training institutions required
    to be set up
  • China already has set up 5000 such institutes
  • Information Centres Creation, Collection,
    dissemination

21
GITCO
  • GITCO has taken the initiative
  • Successfully convinced Academic institutes to go
    for patents
  • LM College of Pharmacy Filed 7 Patents so far
  • In touch with other institutes
  • May set up Patent Tracking Facility Centre

22
Saraswati to Lakshmi
  • California University has helped creation of
    bio-tech enterprises around its campus
  • Created billions of dollars of market
    capitalization
  • Provided jobs for 80 of its graduates
  • But science/research has not suffered in
    University
  • They boast of 45 Nobel Prize Winners too
  • Managed to find route from Saraswati to Lakshmi
  • Keeping eachs role intact at the same time

23
Lets Do It
  • Lets do it here also
  • Build a strong IP culture
  • Academic Institute and Research Institute are the
    key
  • They need all the support
  • It has to be strategic, business like
  • After all IPR is a war-game of mind.
