Indian Patent Office (IPO), United States Patents and Trademarks (USPTO), European Patent Office (EPO), Google Patents and World Intellectual property Organization (WIPO). She also mentioned how live classes helped her grasp the knowledge of IPR. She expressed how the JOPAT program IIPTA helped her to learn practical knowledge in the domain of IPR and also in personality development.
Intellectual property rights (IPR) refer to the legal rights given to the inventor or creator to protect his invention or creation for a certain period of time. These legal rights confer an exclusive right to the inventor/creator or his assignee to fully utilize his invention/creation for a given period of time.
He is currently employed as a Patent Analyst at DartIP, the top IP firm in Kolkata, and is doing a brilliant job. He also receives a very decent salary package. Gourab attributes a large portion of his success to his parents and the IIPTA staff, who were always very motivating. His true objective is to live up to his parent's expectations. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
