Why SiNApSE IP Program?
Over the years, BananaIP (formerly Brain League) has been working towards building IP Knowledge, Culture and Hygiene among Indian companies, research institutions and creators. Some of its efforts have contributed towards taking organisations and individuals up the IP value chain and gain financial value from IP assets. BIP has now taken up the challenge of building IP culture among performers, artists, authors, inventors and creators with the objective of helping them realize financial value from their creative work, and to mitigate IP infringement, misuse and misappropriation.
SiNApSE IP Program is lead by Dr. Kalyan C. Kankanala and Ms. Vinita Radhakrishnan, senior partners at BIP Counsels.
