Understanding of IPR Must for MSME’s

August 4th, 2015

Importance of Copyrights, Trademarks & Patents


Even if you don’t realize it, everyone deals with trademarks on a daily basis. “Trademark” is another way of referring to brands.

Consumers’ purchasing decisions are influenced by trademarks and the reputation such brands represent. It is important for business people to have an understanding of why trademarks are important assets and help grow their business.  Trademarks are an effective communication tool. In a single brand or logo, trademarks can convey intellectual and emotional attributes and messages about you, your company, and your company’s reputation, products and services.

A one day training session on IPR- copyrights, trademarks and Patents was organised by MSME Govt of India and AICOSMIA.
