6th International Conference on Anti-counterfeiting & Anti-piracy
HighLights
 

·         Mr. Anand Sharma, Union Minister of Commerce, Industry and Textiles, Govt of India, had stressed upon the importance for IP rights for the growing economy of India during the inauguration of the National Institute of Intellectual Property Management (NIIPM), a nodal centre for all intellectual property (IP) related issues in India set up in collaboration with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), World Intellectual Property Rights Organisation (WIPO) and Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

·        The idea and message got a further push today at the 6th Edition of CII International Conference on “Anti-Counterfeiting & Anti-piracy” titled “Fighting 21st Century Crime-Through Worldwide Mobilization”

·        Mr. Peter Hass, US Consul General, Mumbai said, “The fundamental of the US constitution is respect of IP Rights because patent law was one of the very first things signed by George Washington in the 18th century. Today industries whose core is based on intellectual property employ 27% of the US work force and is a high value area that creates high paying jobs. Public health and safety, fairness, innovation and economic growth are all dependent on having a robust IP framework. I am very glad about the cooperation between the two countries – Indian and US - in the IP front.”

·         Counterfeiting and Piracy are two of the fastest growing economic crimes in the world today. They threaten the economies of developed and developing countries alike, undermine trading relations, endanger public health and safety and affect new investment for economic growth. They affect all categories of products, but the impact is very high in sectors / product categories like fast moving consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, electronics, automobile and aircraft parts, music, publishing, software, telecom, cosmetics, personal care, beverages etc.

·         Stating that the Indian government is very serious about having strong IP laws and its enforcement, Mr. G R Raghavender - Registrar of Copyright & Director (BP & CP), Copyright Office, Government of India, said, “Indian IP regime is very strong and stands on the three pillars of legislation, management of IP rights and enforcement.” He informed the gathering of the non-legislative steps that the ministry has taken like setting up of Copyright Enforcement Advisory Council - CEAC for the enforcement of rights. 

·         Mr. Raghavender also added another dimension to the issue when he talked about balancing of rights and justice with regards to intellectual property rights. “Creation of generic drugs should not be treated as an infringement because it stifles public interest and steps taken by developing countries to help poor people access some life saving drugs and some technology as per national laws. This is important as well. We have to enforce the law when it comes to copyright so that the nation prospers but public interest is also important because generic drugs provide a cheaper option.”

·        The conference has brought together CEOs, senior corporate executives and IP professionals committed to safeguarding intellectual property. The aim is to unite the global business community to more effectively identify and address intellectual property rights issues and petition for greater commitments by local, national and international officials in the enforcement and protection of IPR.

·          Mr. Ramesh Datla, Chairman CII National Committee on Intellectual Property & Managing Director-Elico Ltd., began the conference by outlining the reasons for the conference, “India needs to be strong on anti-piracy and anti-counterfeiting measures for various reasons. Most importantly it affects virtually all economic sectors that are driven by creativity and innovation. It is vital for sound economies and health of consumers and nation. And it is important for our country’s image.”

·         Fighting this global problem, he contended, remains challenging because “rapid advances in technology and the rise of the digital world have created a market for counterfeiting and piracy.” He said that it was important to unite global business communities to address intellectual property issues at local and international levels, build cooperation, public awareness and concerted action to successfully confront this problem and develop sustainable solutions to stop its growing threat.

·         Mr. R Saha, Senior Advisor, CII, said, “There are perhaps certain gaps in knowledge implementation. As a whole, the industry perhaps needs to develop some kind of SOPs. At this conference perhaps we can consolidate some recommendations for the government.”

·          Along with the conference there is an exhibition of Anti-Counterfeiting / Anti-Piracy Technologies and exhibition of fake and original products. The aim of the exhibition is to build the respect on IP by creating awareness about the menace of Counterfeiting & technologies, its impact and the technologies available for combating this menace.

·        The common consensus in the discussion that followed, was that government will was essential to fighting piracy and that fighting piracy was important for national growth.

·         The two day conference covered almost the entire spectrum of piracy and counterfeiting across every sector that is affected including pharmaceuticals, auto, music, movies, software etc.
