DPIIT seeks views on IPR issues ahead of Trade Policy Forum meeting with United States



The Department of Trade and Industry sought comments and suggestions from stakeholders on intellectual property rights (IPR) issues to be raised at a high-level working group meeting with the United States in the part of the India-US Trade Policy Forum, to be held in the third week of this month.

The Department for the Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) said it would be a “good opportunity for us to raise the concerns and difficulties faced by domestic stakeholders and their interests before the United States.”

“In this regard, you are invited to provide your comments / suggestions / inputs on all intellectual property issues and major demands that industry / interest groups want the government to address with the United States,” said he added.

The department sought information on areas of concern such as the filing, registration, enforcement or commercialization of intellectual property rights in the United States and the level at which challenges were observed, such as intellectual property, government or regulatory application or agency.

He also wants stakeholders to suggest that the government focus on areas of IPRs in its collaborative efforts with the United States, such as patents, trademarks, copyright, design, geographical indications, technology transfer application, commercialization and regulatory approval by October 20.
