Quick Overview

IK Patenting in India: Policy, Procedure and Public Funding: 2016 Edition

The book Patenting in India: Policy, Procedure and Public Funding deals exhaustively with the patents keeping in view the requirements of the researchers, technocrats, industrialists, policy makers and others who make frantic search on one or the other aspects of patents.

The book contains 12 chapters covering all aspects right from selecting a research problem from patent literature which will have industrial significance leading to a patent, up to valuation of patents. The book covers technology policies of the government, financial resources devoted to research and manpower engaged in research in the country. Apart from this, there are various agencies providing support to pre-patenting activities. The book covers all such agencies providing financial and technical support to researchers for filing patent. These activities have been described briefly and provided with appropriate links in order to facilitate the researchers to obtain and track the information on a real-time basis.

A chapter has been specifically devoted for valuation of the patents spelling out in a very lucid manner why and when to fix up the royalty as well as the lump-sum payments. It also covers a chapter on system for disputes resolution in the country and a chapter on international arrangements for patent filing. A separate chapter has been devoted in the book detailing with examples how a patent literature may form a resource material for researchers for identification of research problem for them to undertake or how the patent is helpful in avoiding duplication of the research work. An attempt has been made to cover important aspects of assigning and licensing of the patented invention in addition to the methodologies generally used for valuation of the patented invention.

This book is an important compilation meant for researchers as well as for industries.
