Posted by with No Comments

The main changes introduced in India`s patent law, which were necessary to meet India`s obligations to international agreements and treaties. The new Patents Amendment Act 2005 created a strong patent system in India. Overall, the current system has broadened the scope of the patent and provides strict guarantees to the patent holder. The TRIPS agreement, which came into force on 1 January 1995, is the most comprehensive multilateral agreement on intellectual property to date. The areas of intellectual property it covers are copyright and neighbouring rights (rights of performers, phonogram producers and broadcasters); Brands, including service brands; Geographical indications, including appellations of origin; Industrial designs; patents, including protection of new plant varieties; Designs for the layout of integrated circuits; and undisclosed information, including trade secrets and test data. There have been differences of opinion as to whether software is eligible for copyright or patents. Copyright Office recently decided that software, if not in time with new material should be copyrighted. This is a relief for the software industry, as copyrights are cheap, are automatically recognized and protected for 60 years, while patents are only issued for 20 years. The agreement provides for the general obligation that the parties make available to interested parties the legal means to prevent the use of funds in the designation or presentation of a form of property that indicates or indicates that the species of product in question originates from a geographic area other than the actual place of origin in a way that misleads the public as to the geographical origin of the goods. The Agreement on Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) is an agreement of international law between all World Trade Organization (WTO) member states.

It sets minimum standards for the regulation of different forms of intellectual property by national governments, as is the case for nationals of other WTO member states. [3] The TRIPS agreement was negotiated at the end of the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) between 1989 and 1990[4] and is managed by the WTO.
