Hi Guys,

Let me frst explain these two words which are main theme of the topic they are "Patents" and "Bill".

Patents mean the exclusive right granted by a government to an inventor to manufacture, use, or sell an invention for a certain number of years.

Bill means a proposed law presented to parliament for discussion. (Parliament = Both houses "House of the people" and "Council of states". House of the people takes place in Parliament with the help of the people of the country and Council of states takes place with the help of all assemblies of all the states and 12 nominative members of the president. ).

Now, I try to give my best possible views with the help of these two important words which have been explained above (Patents and Bill).

As we all know that different-2 types of the law take place in the parliament for making the country grow fast and passing patents bill is one of them for making work process ease for the people.

Patents Bill is most important for India because India is a developing country where different-2 kinds of innovations use to take place so if parliament gives full safety to innovators to get their whole income without any fraud so we can think that how much it is important for India. There are many frauds which take place with innovators when they innovate any things which are totally illegal so to prevent them parliament passes the "Patents Bill" so that they can be saved to innovate any things for the country and other people get inspiration to do such things for the country because if we wish to develop our country so there is need of each one contribution.

Thanks. Jai Hind jai Bharat!

According to me, patent bills are good for India. It provides security to the investors of their inventions that no one will steal their ideas, which would be illegal. It would promote more competition and other intellectuals will be forced to come up with new inventions and this will create more quality inventions in our country. So I would definitely go forr the merits of Patents bill in India. Thank you.

Greeting to everyone,

First of all, the Patent bill is the authority to inventors for their innovation for some period of time. No one can replicate it with any permission. So, the patent bill is good for India. Nowadays, more and more people try to do something different. In tht case, parent bill provide security of innovation to particular person as well as it encourages people to do more research. So, that during patent period they can earn more money by creating difference among competitors as well as selling patent in the market.

Hello friends,

As per the topic is 'patents bill good for India'.

Actually, first we have to know what patent does it means. It is the bill or an agreement which is officially done at a world level that the real inventor of the product is that one who actually invented it by spending a lot of time, money and most important his/her hard work.

If the scientist or an inventor does not get its real value or we can say a reward that means the inventor not getting his/her rights so how he/she will again invent something which is beneficial for the country and this not only effect on him that create a big effect on the young generation who's having an interest on research.

So it will be good to have a patents bill for India or every country that will encourage the inventor as well as a young generation who we called a futures of India.

Thank you.

Hello, friends.

I believe that patent bill will be really good for India. India is a developing country so it is required that it should make good innovations in terms of technology and research.

So if patent bill will be there then it will be a matter of great incouragement to the young minds who have interest in research area.

People will engage themselves more on practical ideas and try to find out solutions by innovation.

We in India innovation in small scale is known as Jugaad. People are very good in it. It will be a technological boom for India if it is introduced.

More the Indian companies and MNCs will try to improve their product. A healthy competition will develop b/w them.

Hello, Everyone!

In my point of view, Patent bill is good for not only India but for every country as it is doing justice for the inventors. But this patent bill should not become an extra burden to common man.

The inventor will have a recognition and right over his product. So, this inspires them and also many people to invent something useful. According to law of patents invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years.

According to me, to the country, like India patent bill is extremely good. In some cases, it is helpful if important patents are within the country. If not then India have to pay for the patent holders in other countries which are cost effective and not good for our economy. So if the patent is filed within the country and it is useful to our citizens and helps the patent holder most then it is helpful.

Patent bill is a controversial issue in my view. If we see the medical field where hefty amounts are being charged in the name of patent for as long as 20 years, the necessary drugs are getting out of reach of poor people.

When asked who owned the patent for the polio vaccine, Jonas Salk answered, "There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?".

If vaccines for polio or pneumonia can be like that why not others.

While patent has its advantages as well as mentioned by many of the people above, I just wanted to be into light its dark side.

So we have to decide at which point we have to go.

So from my point of view that patently is good as since from last 66 years, this patent is running without much problem

Yeah, I know there is some problem in delay the decision, in sort out of the problem is not done quickly. But to run such a huge country democratic it is quit difficult. So it is better to have.

In my opinion patents are necessary to have the copyrights of the product which we have developed on our own. So it reduces unauthorized acess or misuse of it. Therefore patent are necessary.

Good afternoon friends.

I have gone through your points and I also want to share my points of view.

A Patent bill is something which prevents the use of a particular patent invented by a person by another person. I want to point out its advantages.

1. It will prevent theft-with the help of this bill now the patent remains with the real inventor. No one can use this patent without the permission of real inventor.

2. Higher profit margin- Due to this patenta bill a particular company or organization will have to approach to the real inventor to use his patent. If this bill were not there any one could have stolen this patent and sold it at cheap rate because it would be easily available in the market. So the inventor ll have very low percentage profit for his invention. Thanks to patent bill that real inventor could gain higher percentage of profit.

3. It stops any kind of disputes between any two parties who claims for the patent.

Now if we talk in the context of India then I would say that it is very necessary. India is a developing nation. There may be lots of technological inventions in the country. So to avoid any kind of theft and ambiguity and to protect the right of real investor it is necessary in India.

Thank you.

Hi Friends,

Patent law is really good for India.

India is a Young country filled with talented people who really want to do something creative, innovate and turn the tables on the west.

However one major hindrance in this field was the absence of a law protecting and recognizing the original work of the Indian inventors and innovators.

So the Patent Bill can be termed as the need of the hour which will protect and recognize the Indian creators and this in turn will provide enthusiasm to the tired research sector and will give Indian innovators something to live and aim for.

Patent bill is not only good but a very important tool for technical and biological development of a country. Talking about India Its people don't have enough exposure to the technology. Some hidden hidden talents remain hidden because of less sources available to them. Moreover they have to earn bread and butter for their livelihood too. So, Indian government should also some patents to help such people. But use of chemicals is contaminating our resources so there should be strict laws for that.

Hi friends.

In my point of view patent is two edged sword.

In terms of technology patent bill can be allowed in India. In India many people are having creative skills and they may use their skills to upgrade the existing technology.

But when we consider the scenario in biological means, they are developing hybrid varieties of plants which would yield more but they are many side effects.

Because of this many new diseases are coming into existence.

When farmers use those seeds for cultivation they may get more yield that year but they cannot use those seeds next year. They have to buy seeds again so I think the patent bills are not good for India in this aspect.

Patent bill is certainly good for India because it is a developing country needs to increase the number of researches and developments. This bill will certainly ensure security of the innovations of various institutions and research centers thereby encouraging more number of researches. As such India is well behind in R&D sector spending less than 1% of its GDP in it. So if the number of researches will be more then the govt will be bound to spend more and this will change our R&D scenario completely.

Not only that various foreign MNCs as well as Indian companies will also be able to secure their intellectual property in their R&D sectors which will also enhance foreign direct investments. So this bill can be a boon for our developing economy.

I strongly believe that the patent bill is good for India.

By patenting your work you are actually protecting your invention and your ideas. Patents promote people to invent and come up with new discoveries. It is a way to prevent people from stealing your work and claiming it to be theirs. You would also get the right amount of credit and money for the hard work you have put in to making your invention.

Patents definitely give your work recognition and would also be an encouragement to people.

Hello friends.

Our country is a developing country and trying to make itself known in the world.

There have been developed so many new technology and all countries are continuously trying to give new technology to the world and want to be ahead in the technology.

So, at this time, our country should encourage the new inventions invented in the India. And this can be happen only if some rule like patent bill will be implemented.

It is true that there are lot of people with creative mind in India.

There is no lack of creativity, the lack is in the opportunities.

What happens is that the people invent new things but they do never come to know publicly. No one gets to know about that invention because that does not get good exposure. And then what happens?

And therefore, it is possible that someone can take the credit of that invention.

To prevent this, there must be a patent bill. If an invention is patent, then that can not be theft and the only real inventor can take the credit.

Because of the patent bill, the people get the authority of their invention and this will also encourage people to invent something new.

So, according to my point of view, for an developing country like India, a patent bill is must.

On the other hand in the field of academy it does not require any more, but it would be more beneficial if government takes some important and tough decisions to improve it.

Ravi Kiran said: (Aug 8, 2013)  
With major changes set to come about under proposed new patent laws, getting advice early in the development of any new product or process is a good idea.

Patent attorneys Rachelle Beale and Margaret Doucas explain some of the key changes and what they will mean.

The long awaited legislation to replace the New Zealand Patents Act 1953 has finally been introduced into Parliament and will be considered by a select committee.

The Patents Bill 2008, introduced in July, makes significant changes to the longstanding Act, most notably for the engineering industry, imposing stricter requirements for the grant of a patent.

Though many of the changes will be welcomed by applicants and patentees for bringing New Zealand's patent law into line with that of most other countries.

Inventions will undergo much stricter scrutiny when it comes to granting of a patent. The current requirement of giving the "benefit of the doubt" to an applicant claiming an invention is patentable, will be replaced with the tougher test of satisfying the Commissioner that on the "balance of probabilities" an invention is patentable.

Further, absolute novelty will be required, meaning that novelty will be destroyed by written or oral description or use anywhere in the world, rather than just the current local (New Zealand) novelty requirement.

The Bill also sets much stricter limits on exactly what can be claimed to be an 'invention'. The Commissioner of Patents will be able to refuse a patent application on the ground that it does not involve an 'inventive step'. In other words, the patent will be refused if it is 'obvious' to a person skilled in the art. Currently, 'obviousness' is not a criteria for consideration by the Commissioner, but is a ground upon which interested parties can oppose the grant of a patent or apply to revoke a granted patent.

A patent application will also be examined for usefulness, with an invention needing to have a specific, credible, and substantial use to receive a grant. This criteria is similar to that required in other countries including the United States "utility" and Europe's "industrial application" requirements.

For those wanting to oppose the granting of patents, the right to seek a hearing with both parties before the Commissioner will no longer exist. Instead, a re-examination by the Commissioner can be sought - without a hearing - before or after grant. Again, the grounds would be lack of 'novelty' or of an 'inventive step'. However, it will still be possible to file an application to revoke a granted patent.

With the extra power the Commissioner of Patents will have to refuse patent applications, it is possible that applications that would be granted under the present Patents Act 1953 won't make it under the new Bill. However, the Bill does provide for appeals to the court over the Commissioner's decisions.

In general the task of construing and interpreting patent claims, and assessing novelty and inventiveness, is not always straightforward. In many cases, different results have been obtained from different tribunals and courts - at the expense of the applicant.

So, considering the substantial changes that will come about as a result of the Bill, it is advisable to seek advice early in the development of any new product or process.

The Bill will go through the normal legislative processes, including opportunities for oral and written submissions, over the next few months. The Select Committee will then recommend changes to be debated in Parliament. The Bill will not become law until after it has been passed by Parliament, which is not likely to occur until 2009 due to the upcoming General Election.

Hi friends.

Patent bill is too good for country like India, which consist a stockpile of talent. If patent bill is allowed in our country then it give a recognition to our talent. For past many years our talent is going abroad to get a good worth of their talent.

With the help of patent rule even a man who doesn't have a lot of research schooling and have some innovative can get their identification (I mean to say that in rural India machinists are making good agricultural instruments).

It will create self employment in country and economically help the lives.

If someone invent a big idea then their are a lot of companies which hire that idea and give a good value of that rare idea.

Our country needs good technology in electronics sector, service sector, power sector (solar, electrical, wind etc. ) , medical sector, infrastructure sector.

So if we hire these technologies from foreign countries we then will pay a lot of cost. On the other side if our own talent is creator of these thing then our youth gets its credit for which we will not pay too much.

But our government should keep sharp eyes on these innovations so that only which ideas will be implemented in innovations which provide positive direction to the nation.

So patent scheme should be implemented in country, but with some rule, regulations and tactics will be associated with that.

I think patent bill for any country is of utmost importance and so is for India. India being a land of art & culture, this assumes even greater importance. In the absence of patent bill a person's zeal to invent is also killed. Also in the absence of patent bill our skilled resources would be shifting to other countries to get their invention patented and to showcase their talent.

In that case the person should be allowed to receive a certain part of profit but must not be given exclusive right so that everyone enjoys the benefit of innovation.

And the inventor will not get the right price of his/her work. But though it have some bad side also.

As we know that patents is a form of intellectual property and its granted to those inventor who invents any new, non obious and should have industrial application. Because of patents we gets incentives to Indian pharma company, better living statndards, good healthy competition amongs industry and more innovatives products comes into markets but at same time its cost lives because anything which is under patent do costly and we are not enogh rich to buy the produt so what I meant it having disadvantages also like if do patent on life saving drugs then definetly it will cost to poor or need person.

Through patent law, the inventor will have a recognition and right over his product. So, this inspires them and also many people to invent something useful. Patents are good not only for India, but for the whole world. Every individual who contributed something original to the society must get his due recognition whether in India or elsewhere. In country like India, where 50% of the population are still illiterate, we need to bring about awareness in the matters of patents. And each one of us need to know, how patent laws can affect a country and how we fought cases concerning patent rights of Basmati rice, neem and turmeric.

First of all we have to know with what patent bill deals with, this bill makes mandatory to patent all new innovation generated by public funded research. Scientist themselves are not happy over this bill. This will involve a huge amount of paperwork and moreover this bill is not in the interest of the public, if public research is sold to company that price thier product very high then people will end up paying double amount. There is also concern that large amount of exchequer will be lost because patenting in itself is very costly process.

Hi friends, according to me patents bill is good for India as I know we any researcher produces his research paper for development than credit must be given to the that researcher so there comes a great confident in all researcher to do the research in all area. By which our country growth is on high rate. Its another benefits is on commercialization area. If company products patent bill is totally related to company and there is no any type of tax than it sold to the consumer at lesser price. So these are area where patent bill is good.

Patent in India should be judged accordingly by the Government. For ex- If Patent rights of a very important medicine is given away to any MNC then it won't be fruitful as the MNC will indulge itself in profit maximization and in country like India, where 40% population is in the chains of poverty, there will be no one but just 5% people who would afford its cost.

Yes patent bill is a good move because it does just to the inventor rather than the firm. In-fact the inventor gets due credit to his invention which not only leads to his own development but also nation.

Patent rights should be provided to the people on the knowledge they had discovered. The main problem in India is most of them got sticked to foreign culture and forgot our Indian culture. Due to this mismatch among a particular product i.e, the way they pack and cost factors if the same product has been given by some other countries it has a special craze in using that. Last but not the least once you are interested in buying a product enquire your well wishers because they know much more information because they follow the actual SCIENCE.

Agree.

1. Patent is a way to give justice to the inventor by giving him credit.
2. Fame encourages invention & helps inventor monetarily.
3. Patent also ensures quality.

This agree.

1. Patent makes product costly under MNC not always but it does.
2. As it is expensive it restrict its flow and usage. Not available to everyone.

Hello friends, first I would like to say something, that what is the patent in my point of view "Patent is the protection of the rare idea OR things which is created by the hard work and creativity".

Why the patent is good for India.

By the patent a person can get security about his/her discovery which there hard work ant there unique creativity.

Only patent can give reward of the invention, because when a person invent something he/she had used there big part of time to create something but what they have create it's price not will be as much as they had given the time and don the hard work. By the selling the patent they can get there incentive which they can't get without patent & it's also encourage the people to innovation and discovering the new idea to do something.

But there should be some rules and regulation for the patent.

Patent should not give for the natural things we can say patent only give for that things which a person have create very new and after given the patent, peoples existing needs and activity should not effected.

For the give the patent there should be a appropriate rules and regulations for the example.

What will be time period for the patent.

It should be check that patent gainer did not stole any idea from the other people or things which he/she is going to take patent.

By the given patent it's negative effect should not com on the people existing right & needs.

I Think the Patents Bill is good provided a layman should be aware of this. Patents bill is Really good because it help to get a profit from someone invention. And is much needed in country like India. If we see many of over Bollywood movies are copied from some another movie or it is the remake of any old movie. This kind of situation the Patents Bills really help a lot to original inventor of product.

This is was a simple example which I shared with you but there can be more cases with different -different product. So Patents Bill is Good for India.

Patent bills or patent rights are nothing but the rights given on the new discovery or invention done to a person. People living in remote areas are unaware of such things. They discover new ideas or new things but they remain undiscovered. So government should organise some awareness programme so that people can be aware of patent rights and rights should be issued on the name of the person who has discovered.

Hello friends, before saying anything, first I want to explain the exact meaning of this so called patents bill. Patent bill, or patent act is an act which provides an exclusive right granted for inventions, which may b a product or a new idea which provides new direction in doing some thing more innovative.

Yes I agree with this that it is good for india, as well as other contries too, as it is justice with the inventors. They have a recognition and full right over there product or idea, and this inspires them a lot.

Although its good in some way, but somewhere, common man is suffering from it, as they had to pay more cost for the products under this patent bill.

Even if a man is inventing something independently but few days later, then he won't have any right over it, as the person who have already invented it, can claim a case on him.

So at the end I wold like to conclude by saying that its a good act as it provides inspiration to common man and the inventor too, but it should not increase etc burden on common man.

Thanks to all.

Hi every one.

Patent bill is a very good for the India, as patent act provides the security for inventor, motivate by giving rewards in the form of benefits. It's a need of human being/nation whether it is in the form of money or publicity of brand. In case of patenting necessary things like medicine in Indian patent act their is provision that no one can patent medicine which will going to use for life threading diseases and government have right to off patent any medicine in emergency situations. So in conclusion patent bill is need to encourage researchers in R&D sector in India in turn to increase the financial involvement by government.

As we all know, patenting anything has both good and bad sides to it. There are two types of goods, consumer staples, which are required by all as necessary, and consumer discretionaries, which are luxuries, that everyone cannot afford. For a country like india, where more than 40% of people are below poverty line, it would be unjust on our part to patent the consumer staples, like health care, medicine. We can't make someone reap the benefits of their patents, keeping the lives of the poor people at stake. But at the same time, patenting of technologies like those used in the mobile industry would certainly spur the economy by encouraging research in that field.

I totally agree with all the points being said on the favour of the patent bill in India, as it would benefit the new generation inventors to patent their technology in the country itself rather than going on for some higher approval outside the country. The patent bill would help the inventors safeguard their inventions from being used illegally by any other person or country. Like if an author publishes a book, he gets the rights of the book to sell it to anybody or distribute it for free. Same way patent bill would prove a great boost to the development of our economy!

Patent bill is good for developing country but not good for poor country because developing country has many talent people through hire. But poor country can not hire talent people.

PATENT BILL is of great importance. Every innovation is important and must be recognised and with the every product of Patent the name of the person who is responsible for this Patent must be mentioned because all of us should know about the inventions of that country and that persons. People who are from poor family invented a lot of things but they they have no idea about what they have invented and that add to what the world. Many of the times value additions is also can be done by this process. I would suggest a common forum for rural areas inventions so that every persons is recognised.

Patent bill is certainly good for India because it is a developing country needs to increase the number of researches and developments. This bill will certainly ensure security of the innovations of various institutions and research centers thereby encouraging more number of researches. As such India is well behind in R&D sector spending less than 1% of its GDP in it.So if the number of researches will be more then the govt will be bound to spend more and this will change our R&D scenario completely.
Not only that various foreign MNCs as well as Indian companies will also be able to secure there intellectual property in their R&D sectors which will also enhance foreign direct investments. So this bill can be a boon for our developing economy.

Patent laws form a very important part of a developing nation and as such its enforceability opens up many opportunities for India. In the early 1990's, FDI was restricted many because our lack of patent laws made it difficult for MNC's to protect their intellectual property. Now that patent protection is being enforced, MNC's are more comfortable bringing in technology and intellectual property making India more richer.

However, the pharma industry which was a striving business under the policy of process patent was dealt irreparable harm by the enforcement of product patent when India joined the WTO.

Also, there have been cases where seeds of Indian farmers have been patented by a foreign counterparty due to lack of awareness and funds of the former. For example, recently the you. S. Government granted a patent for the anti-diabetic properties of karela, jamun, and brinjal to two non-resident Indians, Onkar S. Tomer and Kripanath Borah, and their colleague Peter Gloniski. Yet the use of these substances for control of diabetes is everyday knowledge and practice in India.

Patenting is definitely a good thing and may help a innovative mind reap the profits for the hardwork he has done.

But there should be a limit on the items or ideas which can be put under patenting law.

We cant afford to patent medicines in a poor country like ours, we cant think of patenting healthcare services in our country, we should not patent education. In short govt must not allow patenting of things that affects life of a poor and common man.

And each one of us need to know, how patent laws can affect a country and how we fought cases concerning patent rights of Basmati rice, neem and turmeric.
