A guest lecture on “Intellectual Property Rights in the field of Jewellery Designing” has been organised dated 19 Oct’19 in the Department of Jewellery Designing at the IIS (Deemed to be University) Jaipur where the resource person is IP Facilitator Pankaj Kumar arranged by the IP Management Cell (IPMC) of the University.

More particularly, it covers basics of IPRs, categories and the types of IPRs, introduction of various IPRs, rationale behind IPRs, balancing of the rights, objectives, options to the innovators.

The beneficiaries of the program were around 20 students and 2 teaching staffs from the department. During the interaction, some participants showed their created designs and requested copyright and Industrial design registration. The course develops cultural, business and professional awareness as well as communication skills. Work becomes increasingly self-directed through the course.

Some participants informed that so far they share their created design to any person interested and put such designs in open access and now they realized that it would be difficult to prohibit other person to misappropriate other creation until the claim supported by strong evidences which may be admissible to the law of courts. There are some tips given how to freeze the evidence of such creation helpful later to prove the rights.

The interaction indicated that there are potential in some candidate who may start their own design boutique after completion of the formal education. Further such candidates having awareness in IPR and preferably having some certification in the subject may be preferred in placement.

 Organized for (Target Group): The students of Bsc. Jewellery Design & Technology, BA/BCom./Bsc. Elective Jewellery Design & Technology & COSD Jewellery Designing(Certificate & Diploma course & Advance Diploma Course).
