About the Conference:
India's prominence in the global economy has increased significantly, sparking huge interest from foreign investors. It has opened tremendous opportunities for Indian Companies as well as companies having presence in India. In almost all industry sectors, multinational companies are now doing business in India. Also, the Indian companies are not thinking of being restricted to any one market. They have high aspiration to expand their market base and go global.
In the modern business world there is a general shifting from physical assets towards Intellectual Property assets such as patents, trademarks, industrial designs, trade secrets, copyrights etc.
Intellectual Property is acting as a primary source of value added growth and earning power for the business. The company's competitive advantage therefore lies largely in its capacity to manage these strategic IP resources.
The Trade-Related aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement laid minimum IP Standards for all World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries to protect the business interest of the companies having business worldwide. Now the time is changing; the countries are providing conducive environment to initiate the change in there IP systems to be in the competition and attract Foreign Direct Investment. While India has also done lot of changes in its Intellectual Property Regime, the industry sectors are yet to get engaged actively in innovation, R & D and design.
The sixth edition of our conference, IPEX-2015: 'Think Local-Act Global: Interfacing IP in a globalized World' aims to strengthen the participation of Indian Companies in current knowledge based economy. Now, it is time for Companies to understand the local problems and opportunities which means 'think local' and come up with unique solution to those problems; at the same time ability of the companies to commercialize the solutions in global markets, hence 'Act Global'.
It is also equally important that companies should understand the importance of protecting their unique solution coming from 'think local' strategy in the form of IPR. Indian Companies must be well aware of the global developments taking place in the field of Intellectual Property and business thereby framing effective strategies and 'Act Global' in light of Global IP regimes. The objective is that Indian Companies should lay a solid IP foundation keeping in mind 'Think Local - Act Global' strategy; in order to maximize future value, and ensure success in a longer run.
