    Intellectual property rights or Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) are rights given to people over the creations of their minds. IPRs, which connote the rights available for the protection and exploitation of technology for the benefit of patentee, society, and government, occupy an important place in today‟s world. Intellectual property safeguards the rights of an inventor in his invention, and at the same time facilitates social and economic growth by providing an impetus to the advancement of science and technology. Unlike Fundamental Rights of citizens which are guaranteed by the Constitution of a country, IPRs are statutory rights enacted by the lawmaking authority in a country. With the development of new technologies a balance between the private rights and public interests need to be implemented, and there born the intellectual property system. The first intellectual property system came in from the West with the industrial development for the past four centuries. Through these years, IPR has converted from feudal power to people's private rights.
