One’s Inventions and Creations are considered as one’s Intellectual property in nature, and there are laws around the world to prevent the use or misuse of an invention by someone other than the original inventor. Generally such laws to protect invention and inventor's interests are called Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).Along with teaching and extension activities, an educational institution needs to encourage creativity, research and provide a conducive environment.
