MISSIONARIES OF CHARITY - COPYRIGHT
Missionaries of Charity is an International religious congregation founded by Mother Teresa, in the year 1950. Started the journey in Calcutta, India, the Missionaries of Charity grew to help the destitude people, poorest of the poor, orphans , lepers and AIDS sufferers. With the spirit of helping the poor and down-trodden in society, Biswajit Sarkar, our senior Attorney, had volunteered the legal service to uplift the intellectual vision of such an acclaimed and esteemed institution by creating the Copyright Protection over the House Name of Missionaries of Charity. This Intellectual Property Rights case brought rare acclaim to our team and more so, an example to the world.
The far-sightedness of Biswajit Sarkar in envisioning that the name could at a later date be misused by unruly and unscrupulous elements for their selfish motives and interest, is worthy of mention. Today, it is starkly relevant when the name of this pious and holy institution is being used world-wide by nefarious elements in the name of good work and charity to serve their ulterior motives. Such is despite of the Intellectual rights being bestowed by the courts. It is another issue that implementing and protecting of such rights is an arduous task and the revered institution is struggling to keep up to the nuances of it.
