BMA - Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights
- Bangalore Management Academy (BMA), Bangalore is organizing a ONE DAY WORKSHOP ON Intellectual Property Rights for the 21st Century Librarian on 16th September 2009.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Intellectual Property Rights have become crucial for knowledge economy workers with laws getting stricter on unauthorized use of published material and stringent on piracy in software. In India, patent laws and copyright laws have been amended to make them compatible to the TRIPS agreement under the WTO. What are the new issues in copyright and patents that today’s knowledge managers must be aware of? How do these laws protect intellectual development and catalyze the knowledge economy? What do librarians, students, writers and producers of knowledge need to watch out for when using other’s published material or when using software packages and databases? This workshop will discuss critical concerns relating to IPRs through lectures and discussions by leading academics and lawyers working in this area.
Amir Ullah Khan’s PhD work is on IPR issues in the software sector. David Thompson has taught referencing and sourcing in various countries. Suresh Kumar is a leading corporate lawyer with a special interest in IPR issues. Anu George is a lawyer and has written on IPRs.
