What are the fundamental principles of protection for IPRs?


  • National Treatment- Any foreign national applying for a particular IPR in another country will get the same protection as that country provides to its nationals.
  • Minimum Period of Protection- The protection is granted for a minimum period known as the term of the IP.
  • Scope of protection- The scope of protection depends upon the kind of intellectual property and international norms.

No conditions – If the Intellectual Property fulfils the essential criteria like novelty, originality, innovation, workability, etc., it gets the protection sought.
