Which way 

Can you please tell me something about IPR (intellectual property rights) practice and suggest a few courses? 
   Rakesh Jivan 

There are barely 1,000 practicing patent professionals in the country. According to a NASSCOM report, 33% of the intellectual property (IP) professionals demand is from the knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) sector. According to a McKinsey report, the market demand for IP professionals is likely to touch 15,000 in the next three years. 
   The study and application of IP laws has gained further momentum due to the IT and entertainment revolution and globalisation of the business environment. The importance and goodwill of a brand in the modern scenario has driven the demand for registering trademarks and patents. 
Anyone pursuing law can opt for IPR as a specialisation during the final year of LLB. 
   Practicing advocates and company secretaries can also practice as trademark agents. A practicing lawyer can also practice patenting. 
   Non-lawyers need to acquire the IPR qualification to practice trademarks by giving a one-day exam and viva at the trademark office. 

  Similarly, you need to take a oneday exam at the patent office to be eligible to practice patenting. Patenting being a somewhat technolegal area, you also need the basic skill of writing patents, which is honed only by experience. 

   You can either top up a Bachelor's in law with a degree in IP law or if you have expertise in a given domain that too can be topped up with a qualification in IP law. 

   Check out some of the following courses: 

   National Law University, Jodhpur, Rajasthan,  offers a Master's degree in IPR and a postgraduate diploma in IPR Laws 

   Amity Law School, Delhi (

   Delhi University's department of law offers diploma in IPR,  

  FICCI Institute of Intellectual Property Development, New Delhi, offers a six-month postgraduate diploma in intellectual property management administration and law. The course is recognised by the ministry of human resource development. 

   The Global Institute of Intellectual Property (GIIP) has tied-up with the University of Washington's Centre for Advanced Studies and Research on Intellectual Property (CASRIP) to offer an advance certificate programme on patent and intellectual property. 

Programmes are offered through Software Technology Group (STG) training centres in Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata and Mumbai. 

IGNOU and Queensland University of Technology Australia are jointly developing an online course on IPR. The two-year Master’s programme will be a unique course and it will aim at developing knowledge, awareness and practical skills in IPR. The course will commence from January next year.


Nursing hopes 

Can you please tell me something about the scope of perfusion technology? I a student of BSc (nursing). 
   Pryanka Sharma

A perfusionist is a skilled and qualified allied health professional who works as a member of an openheart surgery team, responsible for the selection, setup, and operation of a heart-lung machine and other life support systems such as artificial lungs, lABP LVAD, RVAD, and ECMO. 

  Clinical perfusionists are required to operate circulation equipment when it becomes necessary to temporarily and artificially replace the patient's circulatory or respiratory functions. They also control the patient's body temperature during surgery. 

   The perfusionist ensures blood supply to each cell during an openheart surgery even when the heart and lungs are not functioning. The removal of carbon dioxide from and addition of oxygen to the blood takes place through the machine when blood is pumped through it. This enables surgeons to make necessary cardiac repair. Understandably, this is a highly specialised job that requires total dedication.
