Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) cover a range of legal rights given to individuals or entities for their creative works, such as inventions, literature, art, logos, trademarks, and commercial designs. The protection of these rights, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, plays a vital role in promoting innovation, creativity, and economic development in contemporary societies. The idea of intellectual property has a long history, dating back to ancient civilizations. During that time, artisans and craftsmen were acknowledged and compensated for their innovative creations. However, it was only with the rise of the Industrial Revolution and the subsequent boom in technological progress that the importance of establishing legal safeguards for intellectual creations became evident. This research paper focuses on the intricate issues and obstacles involved in safeguarding Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) within the legal system. This paper aims to explore how legal systems in different jurisdictions handle the complex realm of intellectual property rights, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. This research paper explores the complex world of protecting Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), examining the various legal frameworks, enforcement methods, and new obstacles that arise in different jurisdictions. This study analyses the efficacy of intellectual property rights (IPR) legislation in protecting innovations, creative works, and brands. It also explores the delicate equilibrium between IPR protection and the broader interests of the public. Through conducting comparative analyses, exploring case studies, and evaluating enforcement strategies, the dissertation seeks to offer a thorough understanding of the intricate challenges associated with protecting intellectual property rights in an interconnected, digital era. This paper aims to provide valuable insights and recommendations to policymakers, legal practitioners, and stakeholders. It focuses on strategies to strengthen intellectual property rights protection, encourage innovation, and support economic growth, all while considering societal interests and values.
