The protection of the intellectual property is an important issue nowadays. Intellectual property may be any creation of the human mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names, images, and designs used in commerce; for which a set of exclusive rights like copyrights, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights, and trade secrets are recognized under the corresponding fields of law. To create awareness among people on intellectual property rights, the Patent Information Centre (PIC) at the Assam Science Technology and Environment Council (ASTEC), Govt. of Assam set up the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Cell at Dibrugarh University in 2009. Since then, the cell is continuously been working on creating awareness of the intellectual property and facilitating necessary services in protecting the innovations of the university fraternity.
