IP4Kids, is a CSR initiative of the Firm, to build a fully-fledged multilingual interactive website for the purposes of spreading awareness about Intellectual Property and Innovation among the younger generation. The Firm aims to stimulate in the young minds of children, a culture of innovation, and to inculcate in them a respect for the fruits of one’s labor, as it firmly believes that, “when one creates IP, he respects IP, as he expects others to respect his IP as well”.
The Firm’s endeavor is to provide a forum in which the relevant stakeholders continue to identify, discuss and elaborate creative solutions for building respect for Intellectual Property. IP4Kids workshops have focused on interactions with students, teachers and young grassroots innovators, and in the past the Firm has received support from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
Through this initiative, Partners and Associates at the Firm actively participate in IP sensitization events like the Indian Innovation Festival organised by the National Science Centre (NSC) every year. During this festival, a Booth is set up by the Firm in the NSC, wherein the Associates from the Firm interact with students, teachers and young grassroots innovators and sensitize them about the importance of IPR protection. The initiative has also received support from WIPO in the form of its publications being distributed at the Festival organized by the National Science Centre, New Delhi.
The Firm’s initiative also focuses on making IP fun for school students by organizing several competitions for school and college students throughout the year.
