P.G.Diploma in Cyber Laws & Intellectual Property Rights (PGDCL & IPR)

Introduction and Future Prospects : With the availability of easy access to the Internet facility, a world of change is expected in the field of business & commerce in India. There is right now a number of business portals available catering to the B2B and B2C segments of e-commerce. Also, Internet Banking is gaining in popularity; again banks are getting their branches networked and plans are afoot to get the major Banks connected for speedy and hassle-free transactions, so much so, the era e-banking has begun and is expected to grow fast. Meanwhile, the concept of e-governance has taken roots and the several e-seva centers are testimony for its success though there is scope for much more to be done in this area.

While the technological developments in the fields cited above go ahead at a fast pace, the fact remains that a congenial Legal Environment is mandatory to extend a legal support to the developments on the technical front. The Government of India has, on the anvil, a number of bills to provide a Legal Environment in which e-commerce/ e-banking transactions can take place; so much so, when any disputes arise in such transactions, there would be legal remedies readily available. The first step in this direction is the enactment of the IT Act 2000, which came into force from 17th October 2000. This act accords a legal status to Electronic records through Digital Signatures, empowers Certifying Authorities to issue Digital Signatures Certificates; also the Act provides for a Cyber Appellate Tribunal as the appellate authority.

It is unfortunate that transactions done on the Internet have left a scope for Cyber Crime: It is well known that Viruses, spread through the Internet at lightning speed data and disabling a vast array of net-worked computers. Also the Internet has become a haven for brainy crooks to hack into computer systems at their will and swindle the banks, E-mails give scope for sensational news to spread very fast as evidenced by the run on a couple of banks in recent times. While we have to live with cyber Crime, surely ways must be found to track such Cyber Criminals and punish them. The IT Act has provided good scope to deal with Cyber Offences, the penalties & punishments to be given.

All these developments have left us to address a situation wherein Legal Personnel have to gain an intelligent understanding of the Internet, use of Computers, Digital Signatures and the Security aspects of e-commerce transactions. The software personnel developing the different applications in e-commerce, e-banking & e-governance should have a good appreciation and understanding of the Legal setup in which they function and the implications of the important Cyber Laws that affect the software development.

India is a signatory to the TRIPS (Trade related Intellectual Property Rights) agreement of WTO; this has given a new vigour to the development of appropriate Legislation for Intellectual Property Rights. It has become mandatory to amend our IPR Laws (Patent Law & Copyright Laws, for example) in consonance with the model-laws evolved by the TRIPS agreement & the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). India is a signatory to the patent cooperation Treaty of WIPO. All this has given a new relevance to the Intellectual Property Rights for Scientists, Technologies and Software Personnel.

This inter disciplinary course is designed to address the needs of the Legal Community as also of Scientists, Technologists, Software Personnel explaining to them the Technical and Legal issue of Cyber Laws and Intellectual Property Rights. It is designed to be a bridge-course wherein Legal Personnel are taught the intricacies of Computers and security Management while Software personnel are taught the essential legal subjects of relevance to their profession. Also Intellectual Property Rights are given a pride of place in the course because of their enhanced status and relevance both to the Scientific and Legal Community. To the best our knowledge, this is the first such course in the country offering an inter-disciplinary approach to both Cyber Laws and the Intellectual Property Rights.

Computer Lab : Classes are conducted during the Contact Classes and/or based on adequate response from the participants, before and after the contact classes, for an extended period. The computer lab classes will be conducted in the recently developed Cyber Security and IPR Lab. In addition to the usual lab classes in MS-Office, C-Language, we have introduced Lab sessions in Legal Databases, Hacking and its prevention, Encryption and Decryption of Digital Signatures based on RSA-algorithm and accessing the Patent Database etc. the participants should appreciate that hands-on Lab experience is an integral and important part of the course structure. Also, participants are given free access to the internet and encouraged to visit relevant Legal sites for Case Law developed and Project work.

It is expected that Legal Process Out-sourcing (LPO) would be flourishing in India in the near future; this requires a strong background in the International Law aspects of the different subjects. This course is unique as we emphasize International Law in Part I of each subject.

The course would be an important additional Qualification for Professional employment opportunities for the Legal Personnel with Solicitors and Advocates specializing in cyber laws and IPR Laws. Also Software Personnel would find opportunities for employment as Patent Agents and with Patent-cells of the Software Organizations. Some of our participants found employment with reputed firms of Solicitors and some others are pursuing L.L.M. in different Universities in U.K.

Introduction and Future Prospects : The Consumer is the focal point of all business actives. Business depends and revolves around him. However, consumers whether rich r poor. Iiterate or illiterate, urban or rural often become the victims of adulteration, spurious, hazardous and high prices.

Even the goods/services of state undertakings such as nationalized banks, State Electricity Boards. Telephones Departments, are no exceptions. In most developed countries, consumer awareness is high and the government in these contrast, the Indian consumer is mostly unaware of his rights and the laws that protect his interests and therfore unscrupulous middlemen exploit the consumer miserably n different ways in the market environment.

EVALUATION

The evaluation system of these diploma programmes is designed to test systematically the student`s progress in the courses offered, through internal assessments as well as term-end examinations.

Internal Assessments (Assignments): Internal Assessment will be done through evaluation of assignment which will be sent along with the course material. The Completed Assignments have to be sent back to the Assistant Registrar, Centre for Distance and Virtual Learning, within the stipulated date. They will be evaluated for 30% of the total marks.

Term-end Examinations : Performance will also be assessed through a term-end examination at the end of each term, which will be evaluated out of 60%. Student should score at least 25 marks out of 60. Only those students who satisfactorily complete the contact sessions (or submit their Term Paper/ Lab Test in case of Foreign/NRI students who are exempted from the contact classes) and submit assignments before the stipulated date are eligible to take the Term-end examinations.

Examinations for Foreign students/NRIs : Efforts will be made to conduct term-end exams for NRI/foreign students with the help of the Indian Embassies/Indian High Commission situated there. In case it is not feasible to conduct exams in the country of their residence, they should be prepared to come and appear for examinations at the campus of University of Hyderabad.

Contact Sessions for Foreign Nationals/ NRIs : Foreign nationals and NRIs staying abroad are exempted from contact sessions, but, they should submit a term paper on a specified topic at least 15 days before the commencement of the examinations. The topic of term paper will be intimated to the students, if the student applies for exemption well in advance.

RESULTS

The final results for each programme are determined on the basis of (a) Attendance in contact classes and practical, (b) internal assessment, and (Assignments) (c) performance in the end-term examination, in the ratio 10:30:60.

The final result in each course will thus be calculated on the basis of continuous assessment, in the following manner.

No. Test Types Relative Weight
1 Contact classes Counseling /Practicals or Term Paper/Lab Test 10%
2 Internal Assessment (Assignments) 30%
3 Term-end Examination 60%

A student is declared passed in a course only if he/she secures a minimum of 40% marks, (internal assessment, contact classes, and term-end examinations put together) provided that he/she secures a minimum of 25 marks at the term-end examinations. Students with less than 40% marks in any course taken by him/her may appear for re-examination in the course concerned in the next term-end examination. Candidates failing in any course/paper have to pay Rs 300/- per course/paper to appear in the subsequent examinations.

Grading:
Successful students will be awarded divisions on the basis of the average marks obtained by them as follows:

  - First Division with Distinction: 75% & above
  - First Division: 60% & above but below 75%
  - Second Division: 50% & above but below 60%
  - Third Division: 40% & above but below 50%

Improvement :
Students may improve their performance in any course on payment of Rs. 300/- for each course. This facility will be given only once in a course and should be requested within four weeks of the announcement of results. There is no provision for improvement of marks for assignments, contact classes, practical sessions (wherever compulsory) or for Project Work/Project Reports.

Re-counting :
Re-counting of term-end exam answer scripts will involve recounting of marks, re-totaling and a special scrutiny to see if any portion of a question or a whole question was inadvertently left unmarked. Requests for re-counting should be made within 21 days from the date of publication/announcement of results, and should be accompanied by a draft for Rs.500/- per course towards Re-counting Fee. The results of re-counting will normally be communicated to the students before the next examinations are held. If any variation is found as a result of re-counting, the university will accept the higher of the two, and a revised provisional marks memo will be issued to the students free of charge. There is no provision for re-evaluation of assignment marks and answer scripts.

Re-examination :
Students who fail to complete the course requirements of a given term can defer any course or all courses to the next year. They could also defer the complete Programme to the next academic year. Any assignments done and internal assessment marks earned will be carried forward to the next term/year. Students, who fail in a course in a term, may pursue the 2nd term by paying the remaining part of the Programme fee. They can appear for re-examination in the failed courses at the subsequent terminal examinations. To facilitate this, examinations for both 1st and 2nd terms are conducted at the end of each term. All students are expected to complete their course requirements within a period of six academic terms. Those who do not complete the Programme in all respects can re-enroll themselves for the Programme by paying half the-Programme Fee. In such cases study material will not be issued again.

Memorandum of Marks :
Provisional marks memo would be issued to students on completion of the first term. But Provisional Certificate-cum-memorandum of marks would be issued only after a student completes all course requirements.

Final Diploma Certificates :
Certificates will be issued after satisfactory completion of Programme requirements on payment of Rs.300/- through a Demand Draft drawn in favour of the Finance Officer, University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad 500 046, payable at Hyderabad on State Bank of India or from any nationalized bank, along with the II-term instalment fees.

Duplicate Diploma/Certificate :
The Enrolment card, certificate of diploma, marks memo, will be issued only once. If the student losses the Enrollment card / marks memo, the student can request the Director (CDE) for a duplicate on payment of Rs.300/- through a Demand Draft drawn in favour of the Finance Officer, University of Hyderabad, payable at Hyderabad from any Nationalized Bank. However, duplicate of the Final Diploma Certificate will be issued only after producing necessary police enquiry Certificate and payment of Rs.600/- through a Demand Draft.

Transfer of Credits/Marks :
A candidate who has successfully completed a PG Diploma Programme from the CDE, and who wishes to join another diploma Programme of the CDE, with common papers or courses, will be exempted from the contact classes and examinations for those course/papers which are common. The marks and credits for the papers which are common will be transferred. However, she/he should pay all tuition fees prescribed by the university from time to time for the Programme.

 

Admission

Students found suitable for admission to a programme will be informed about the Programme Fee which has to be paid within the prescribed date. Only those who pay the fees within the stipulated date are treated as admitted. Mere receipt of admission offer letter does not entitle any right to claim admission.

Students who do not furnish full information and proof, by attaching ATTESTED (by a gazetted officer or a person holding equivalent rank) XEROX COPIES of certificates, marks sheets and service certificates (clearly showing the number of years of service and the field of work) about their academic/ professional record are liable to be rejected.

Any document sent separately, after submission of the application, will not be considered.

Verification of all the original certificates/ marks certificates /experience certificates will be done at the time of contact classes on the campus. The students are, therefore, required to bring their original certificates when they attend contact classes. Students will be permitted to appear for the term-end examination only after this verification. Until then their admission will be provisional.
