NIPO gets National Non-Governmental Organization Observer Status at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

New Delhi, 9th October 2006: The Assemblies of the 183 member states of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) which concluded on Tuesday, October 3, 2006 have granted National Non-Governmental Organization Observer Status to NIPO. NIPO’s candidature was actively supported by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion which is the nodal Department for WIPO matters in India.

WIPO grants the above status to Organizations which are essentially concerned with intellectual property matters within the competence of WIPO and are able to offer constructive, substantive contributions to the deliberations of the Assemblies of WIPO.

NIPO is one of the first organizations from India to be granted such status and joins the league of American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), British Copyright Council (BCC), Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation (JIII), German Association for the Protection of Industrial Property and Copyright Law (GRUR), Arab Federation for the Protection of Intellectual Property Rights (AFPIPR); the European Commercial Patent Services Group (PatCom) among others.

Future programmes of NIPO are to advance an intellectual property Development agenda that promotes business practices, commercial infrastructure and law fostering economic growth through efficient development, use and exchange of IP rights at the point where technology development, intellectual property rights, and jobs creation all intersect. NIPO would provide its members with a strong voice on IP matters affecting their future business through regular publications, meetings and conferences to both educate and engage public debate on issues such as IP enforcement, trade and finance, scope of patent rights and freedom-to-operate, litigation impediments, etc.

NIPO also intends to assist companies in obtaining and exchanging IP rights and will explore IP trade practices eventually leading to the development of an Intellectual Property Rights Exchange and an Export Promotion Council for Intellectual Property Rights.
