The UP Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Development (OVCRD) will hold its lecture on ‘Intellectual Property’ for the students of Institute of Islamic Studies at the Bulwagang Salam, Romulo Hall on October 6, 2017, Friday, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.
According to http://www.ovcrd.upd.edu.ph/up-intellectual-property/, “Intellectual property or IP refers to a creation of the mind. This means everything the human mind is capable of making, including literary and artistic works, inventions, designs, music, dance, plays, are all IPs. IP is thus a valuable concept that involves every aspect of the University’s roles: teaching, research, and extension work.”
Furthermore, “an IP right or IPR is the legal right of a creator or innovator to be recognized and to benefit from their work, and is obtained through registration of the IP at the IP Office. Depending on the type of IP involved, IPR may come in the form of copyright, patent, utlility model, industrial design, trademark, layout-design of integrated circuits, geographical indication, or trade secret. Registering IP and knowing one’s rights is important for an IP owner to share his ideas to the public while protecting his interests.”
