There is a misconception that IP is only for personal growth and development. She emphasized that through IP, we can contribute in our country’s growth and development also. We can reduce the dependency of our country on external resources. She also talked about the confusion that people face during filing a patentable content. There are different categories of IP which should be taken care of while filing a patent. She gave a very detailed presentation on how to distinguish among different categories and also discussed about different aspects of IP.
