Non-Disclosure Agreement

DRUG PATENTS, DRUG PRICES INDIA, DRUG PRICE REGULATION

In business, there are numerous instances in which you have to share confidential information with another party. For example you have a business idea. In order to execute the idea you will have to share the idea with potential partners, investors or employees.

Startup companies with a new and profitable idea can only succeed if what they are working on remains under wraps. But the key to doing so safely is making sure that the other party is bound to respect the confidential information you provide them and not use it in a way that is detrimental for your business.

Inorder to keep a lid on the sensitive information, a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, alternatively referred to as confidentiality agreements (CA), confidentiality statements, or confidentiality clauses is signed between two parties.

A Non-Disclosure Agreement is typically put to use while disclosing confidential information to potential investors, creditors, clients, or suppliers. Some people might not like the idea of signing a non-disclosure agreement saying “Don’t you trust me?” But without such a signed agreement, any information disclosed in trust can be used for malicious purposes or be made public accidentally. NDA is a promise between two or more parties that the information conveyed will be maintained in secrecy.

The confidentiality of the information is maintained for a specified period of time as mentioned in the agreement. But once the information is made public, that loses it’s “confidentiality” people will be free to disclose the information.

Types of Non-Disclosure Agreements:  

The specific content of each Non-disclaimer agreement is unique as it will relate to details of specific information, proprietary data involved and what is being discussed. In general there are two types of non-disclosure agreements.

  1. Unilateral Non-disclosure agreement: A unilateral agreement binds only one party to the agreement for example a company signs a unilateral non-disclosure agreement with an employee. Employee agrees not to disclose or reveal confidential information learnt while on the job. The majority of NDAs fall under these category and are intended to protect a business trade secret. Researchers and professors at research universities or at R&D department in the private sector are at times required to sign an NDA before they carry out research with the business or university that supports them.
  2. Mutual non-disclosure agreement: A mutual non-disclosure agreement is typically executed between two parties exploring a possible business arrangement or a joint venture or some other possible merger that might have a mutual benefit to both parties.7 Simple Ways You Can Protect Your Idea From Theft

From the “Idea phase” into the “Invention phase”

From the “Idea phase” into the “Invention phase”

Inspiration can be found anywhere if you look around and be open to it. Ideas are relatively easy to come. “Sit-at-tea-discussions”, which are now given a fancy term “brainstorming sessions” generate wonderful ideas. It takes a lot of knowledge, time, money and efforts to refine an idea into an invention.

2

But How do you begin with the idea process? First of all discover a problem. Take out a sheet of paper and write down whatever comes to your mind related to the problem; it doesn’t necessarily make sense and try to come up with a solution to the problem you just discovered. Only after you organize your initial idea, the actual design and development of your product will begin.

Turning an idea into  an invention — it takes lot of efforts and luck to launch a product into, and get that product accepted by, the marketplace. There are substantial barriers in the path of those who pursue innovation. Overcoming those barriers and accomplishing the tasks require careful planning and input from others.

You can’t just take an idea, plunk it down and say “OK, this is it.” You will be defining and tweaking your idea constantly even during development and prototyping.

Entrepreneurship can be a tough and long journey, and the success of your idea may be doubted by many people, even your family and friends! But remain focused on the value that your invention will deliver to your customers. You should be able to clearly explain the basic idea or concept behind your new product or service (in and out of the industry), have a prototype for demonstration of your new product or service, and you may seek professional advice to protect your intellectual property.

How will you determine if your idea will succeed?

One of the best ways to determine the success of your idea is to talk to people around, get customer feedback, before the complete development of the product/service and finalise your target market, pricing model and marketing strategy. Inorder to validate the entry of your product/service into the market carry out complete industrial trials for your product/service.

When you finally set out to launch your business, one of the most important trait you need as an entrepreneur is “Perseverance”. You’ll be told “no” many times but you’ve to move beyond the “no” and eventually, you’re going to get to a “yes.”

Understand that doing business isn’t a rocket science. No, it is definitely not easy to begin a business, but it’s not as complicated or as scary as many people think, either. It’s a step-by-step, common-sense procedure. So take one step at a time!!

“Don’t aim for 10% improvement. Make it radically better and different.”

Before diving into the deep sea, founders should know that every legal decision they take has a potential to impact the company’s partners, investors, employees and customers. Therefore, it is essential that the founders develop an understanding of basic legal principles and practices associated with building a business.

Tax Laws and the Basics of Accounting

Every organization in the world, be it involved in any kind of  business as to pay taxes to the Central, State and/or local/provincial government(s), as the case may be. It is essential for every new entrepreneur to be aware about accounting details and tricky lanes of the taxation world. An aspiring entrepreneur should have sector and area-specific knowledge of taxation because the taxes applicable to different sectors, geographical regions and/or products vary greatly and it is obligatory to be acquainted with any recent changes that have taken place.

Structuring the business-Choosing the type of venture

The most important thing before pulling up a startup is selecting a legal form of conducting business. It is indispensable to determine whether you want to have a private limited company, public limited company, partnership firm, or a limited liability partnership, depending on your long-term goals and vision.

Each form of business will be governed by separate principles and laws. Not complying with the relevant laws means hefty sums will have to be paid to the Government. Thus, heavy loss before you can even start making profit.

Labour and Employment Laws

When you start an organization, you will eventually have to hire new people.

Even if you plan to have independent consultants and contractors working with you or outsource, all these employee-employer relationships will be governed by labour legislations. Breaching these will not only harm you financially but would also harm your goodwill, even before it’s built!

Securities Laws

Securities laws regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), will assist in managing the various stages of life cycle of business including fund-raising. Foreign direct investment, angel investors, crowd funding, venture capitals and even joint ventures are areas that a new entrepreneur must be aware about. It will help increase the profitability of the organization.

Information Technology (IT) laws

Today in this highly-digitalized, and technologically advanced era you inadvertently need the knowledge of Information Technology (IT) laws before starting a new business in order to protect your confidential data from any infringers or hackers.

Corporate governance

Despite being a small organization, a sound knowledge about corporate governance and management will help an aspiring entrepreneur in effectively managing the organization and formulate further expansion plans.

Contract laws 

A business survives on contracts. No organization would come into existence without the use of contracts. Therefore, basic knowledge regarding fundamental principles of  contracts, arbitration, mediation, conciliation certainly helps!

Intellectual property laws

Legally protecting intellectual property is of supreme importance to any business. Hence, filing the right patent/trademark/copyright claims, and timely IP audits of your organization, would increase the profitability of your venture manifold.

Thus, in order for an entrepreneur to sail his ship of business smoothly, a decent knowledge about some of the important legal laws mentioned above is of utmost important.

Recapitalization of Ideas in terms of Technology Patenting in BIG DATA

Recapitalization of Ideas in terms of Technology Patenting in BIG DATA

“One thing about life that’s predictable, is that it is unpredictable”

A brilliant idea for an invention or business could spring into your head at any point in time. But in order to find success, your research and development has to meet modern standards. Ideas are not genuinely original.

As quoted by Mark Twain:-

“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”

Patents can seem like more trouble than they’re worth because the patent process in itself is a struggle. But simply because you don’t want to deal with the patent process, Your brilliant idea needn’t fall by the wayside!

Integrating patents into your business plan, is one of the most overlooked elements of a successful business. It takes a lot of energy to run a business, If you have an idea for a product, service or business, beat the odds and use your passion and energy, to figure out how to make it profitable.There are a number of myths associated with patenting a product or concept that may hold an individual from getting the most out of the concept. In order to see your way clear to filing a patent it is very important to break those myths.

Patent filing narrows down the counterparts and it makes it difficult to impress the investors.

A strong patent portfolio help in fuelling investments for emerging tech companies. Investors often look to see whether a budding company has protected its intellectual property when determining whether to invest or not. It is more likely that you will be taken seriously if you come to the table with excellent technical knowledge and a patent-pending for your idea that’s been well-researched and profits projected, even if you don’t have all the connections with the big players.

It is difficult to avoid infringement so It’s better not to file a patent.

Many things can perform the same function. If you are filing a patent for a software for buying and selling properties, it is possible that you are infringing on a patent someone else took for a software that facilitates property transactions. That’s why the claims section of the patent is so important. Claims have to be worded very carefully. Consult a patent lawyer so that you actually end up having more protection from infringement than you would have without a patent.

My idea is not that great and there is no competition out there for my business plan so why to spend money to patent it.

Never underestimate yourself. There is always competition out there. A competitor could steal the idea and put it to use themselves. Instead of letting other party go away with your great concept and make a fortune, you should protect your concept by filing a patent.

If the invention is “obvious to one skilled in the art,” the patent won’t be valid.

Patent law prohibits granting patents for inventions that are obvious to “one skilled in the art.” Many new inventions are combinations of existing inventions. The specific wording of the claims in your patent is the key to patenting an idea that is already out there or “obvious.”

Licensing the right to make, use, or sell your product is usually the most profitable route for inventors. Even if you may not make money from a patent you can pursue licensing royalties. As patent holder, you retain ownership of the invention and earn royalty payments on future sales of the product.

Everyone who was a part of the meeting where the idea was conceptualized gets to put their name on the patent.

The inventor is the individual who has the concept of the invention, provided of course that there has been a reduction to practice. The company is the assignee-the person or legal entity that has actual ownership of the patent. The royalties from patent generally go to the company, not the employees who came up with the invention.

Deploy Artificial Intelligence & Machine learning

Deploy Artificial Intelligence & Machine learning in Medical Diagnosis

India is experiencing 22-25 % growth in medical tourism and the industry is expected to double its size from present (April 2017) US$ 3 billion to US$ 6 billion by 2018. Medical tourist arrivals in India increased more than 50 per cent to 200,000 in 2016 from 130,000 in 2015. Affordable medicines and good doctors is very lucrative to patients across the globe. Medical tourism is on rise and Indian healthcare industry operates in both private and public sectors.

Healthcare industry in India has come a long way in terms of advancement. The ultimate AIM of research and development in medical diagnostics is to be able to identify different diseases and diagnose them correctly.

Current Drawbacks

Despite ever-improving diagnostic technology, crucial time and valuable resources are lost everyday due to “Misdiagnosis” resulting in unnecessary tests, delayed treatment and present a threat to the health and life of the patients.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning are NEW AGE Technologies

 Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are transformative technologies in most areas of our lives.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning offers tremendous opportunities for the healthcare industry. The use of machine learning in identifying and diagnosing, diseases has actually been one of the biggest breakthroughs in the medical industry.

Intelligence is the ability to learn or the ability to think and reason and Artificial intelligence refers to programming computers and machines to exhibit seemingly intelligent behaviour based on software algorithms.

Today Machines are capable of analysing and interpreting medical scans with super-human performance are within reach. Deep learning, in particular, has emerged as a promising tool and is able to detect brain damage automatically.

WHAT is the Challenge?

How do we know when the machine gets it wrong?

Can we predict failure, and can we make the machine robust to changes in the clinical data?

Human brain is the greatest gift of god. NO machine and neural network can mimic the spiking of neurons just like human brain. The CURIOSITY of human mind to answer questions of HOW, WHAT, WHY and WHEN which is able to take the human mind to even radiate electromagnetic signals differentiates us from machines.

Computers can analyse massive amounts of data at a rapid speed and with higher accuracy as compared to humans. With the help of Computers and the algorithms they run scientists, physicians and medical practitioners or professionals can get better insight into patient’s health and condition and thus can make better decisions regarding the treatment.

Healthcare has become a key industry for investment in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning based on its potential to improve health care system and save lives and money.

Some healthcare and technology innovators are collaborating and trying to change our current reality by experimenting with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Not only have major players such as IBM and Microsoft jumped into their own AI healthcare projects, but several start-ups and smaller organizations have begun their own efforts to create tools to aid healthcare.

And, the savings would be tremendous. One report from McKinsey estimates big data could save medicine and pharma up to $100B annually as a result of improved efficiencies in clinical trials and research, better insight for decision-making and new tools that will help insurers, regulators, physicians and consumers make better decisions.

Machine learning algorithms improve the more data they are exposed to.

If there is one thing the healthcare systems has in abundance, it’s data. Due to different storage systems, ownership and privacy concerns, and no established process that allows people to easily share data with each other, there is a major amount of analysis that’s not currently being done that could glean tremendous results for patients, doctors and healthcare organizations.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) aids in disease identification and diagnosis Much of the AI work done thus far in healthcare is focused on disease identification and diagnosis. From Sophia Genetics that is using AI to evaluate DNA to diagnose illnesses to smartphone apps that can determine a concussion and monitor other concerns such as newborn jaundice, lung function of those suffering from chronic respiratory diseases, blood pressure, hemoglobin levels and even evaluate coughs, disease and health monitoring is at the forefront of the machine learning efforts. Since heart disease is a primary killer of human beings around the world, it’s no surprise that effort and focus from many AI innovators is on heart disease diagnosis and prevention.

The current process to determine an individual’s risk factor for a heart attack is to look at the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association’s (ACC/AHA) list of risk factors that include age, blood pressure and more. However, this is really a simplistic approach and doesn’t take into account medications someone might be on, the health of the patient’s other biological systems and other factors that could increase odds of a heart ailment. Several research teams, including those at Carnegie Mellon University and a study from Stephen Weng and his associates at University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom, are working toward enhancing machine learning so algorithms will be able to predict (better than humans) who is at risk and when they might be at risk for a heart attack. Preliminary results of the AI algorithms were significantly better at predicting heart attacks than the ACC/AHA guidelines. From liver disease to cancer and even psychosis and Schizophrenia, AI algorithms are changing the game in terms of disease diagnosis. Machines are now learning how to read CT scans and other imaging diagnostic tests to identify abnormalities. Although some predict the end of radiologists as we know them, others see AI acting as a radiologist’s assistant.

What is a start up?

According to government a startup is an entity that is headquartered in India which was opened less than seven years ago and has an annual turnover less than ₹25 crore (US$3.9 million)

Digital India

For the help of the new ventures government launched iMADE, an app development platform aimed at producing 1,000,000 apps and  not only this but government also open some financial institutions like PMMY  and the MUDRA BANK, a new institution set up for the development and financing activities relating to micro units with a refinance fund of ₹200 billion (US$3.1 billion).

What privileges  are given by government to the new ventures/startups?

Government gives many privileges to the new ventures under the startup program as they get reduction in

  • patent registration fee,
  • Modified and more friendly Bankruptcy Code to ensure 90-day exit window,
  • Freedom from mystifying inspections for 3 years,
  • Freedom from Capital Gain Tax for 3 years,
  • Freedom from tax in profits for 3 years,

Innovation hub under Atal Innovation Mission, new schemes to provide IPR protection to start-ups and new firms. Through these steps taken by  government the new ventures under startup program get encourage and get through these privileges they can work freely and make profit and the ventures get expanded and  as they get  expanded new job opportunities were  created in the market and the problem of not getting jobs opportunities get reduced.

And not only these but government also making way for international business and international investments for the new ventures under start up India i.e., SoftBank, which is headquartered in Japan, has invested US$2 billion into Indian startups. The Japanese firm had pledged the total investments at US$10 billion.

And Google also declared to launch a startup, based on the highest votes in which the top three startups will be allowed to join the next Google Launchpad Week, and the final winner could win an amount of US$100,000 in Google cloud credit.

Oracle also announced to set up nine incubation centres in Bengaluru, Chennai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Noida, Pune, Trivandrum, and Vijayawada.

Efforts made by various Indian state and state governments

In many states of southern India like Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, in which many new ventures get good rise and opportunities.

Kerala a well known for the government’s startup policy, “Kerala IT Mission”, which focus on fetching ₹50 billion (US$780 million) in investments for the State’s startup ecosystem. It also made India’s first telecom incubator Startup village in 2012.

The state also matches the funding raised by its incubator from Central government with Telangana  has launched the largest incubation center in India as “T-Hub“.

The government of Madhya Pradesh has collaborated with the Small Industries Development Bank of India to create fund of ₹200 crore.

Rajasthan has also launched “Startup Oasis” scheme.

In order to promote startups in Odisha , the state government organized a two-day Startup Conclave in Bhubaneswar on November 28,2016. The main objectives of the event would be to

  • motivate youth towards entrepreneurship,
