The term “Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)” is used to refer to the bundle of rights conferred by law on a creator/owner of intellectual property. These are the rights that a person has over the creations of his mind. IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create.
She joined the program for learning and was very much impressed with the teaching method, Her excellent communication and interpersonal traits of problem-solving helped her to get selected for the internship opportunity offered by IIPTA.
