Intellectual property is the foundation of all technology ventures, yet the laws governing and protecting
Intellectual property rights are unfamiliar territory for most scientists. At international level, Intellectual
Property Rights (IPRs) have traditionally been governed by several conventions- most prominently the
Paris Convention for Patents and Trade Marks (1883) and the Berne Convention for Copy Rights (1886)-
which are administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The Trade Related
Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights Agreement 1994 represents the most far reaching agreement
towards global harmonization of Intellectual Property Rights. Nanotechnology is a young field that
focuses on basic research and material science product. This paper will provide an insight to the laws in
India governing Intellectual property rights in the field of science and technology especially
nanotechnology and the issues and challenges surrounding nanotechnology inventions in patent law.
