Researchers advised on intellectual property

Researchers have been challenged to be vigilant and gain extensive knowledge on intellectual property so as to protect their research and attain individual and community benefits.

The call was made by Hon Lady Justice Elizabeth Jane Alividza, the Deputy Head of the Commercial Division of the high court while presenting at a workshop on intellectual property held at MUII training room at the Uganda Virus Research Institute.

Other presenters also underscored the need for researchers to take keen interest on registering and claiming ownership of their works so as to avoid theft or duplication.

The presenters included Michiel Grobler, Patent Attorney in South Africa, Ass Prof Robert Wamala of Makerere University, Dr Alphonsus Neba, Deputy Programme Director of the Africa Academy of Sciences and Abraham Onyait of the Uganda Registration Services Bureau.
