Interactive session with university seniors

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) of Daffodil International University (DIU) in collaboration with BIPF organized an interactive session with the graduating students titled “Ways to protect IPR & Combating Cyber Crimes” on June 27, 2013 at the DIU auditorium.

Professor Dr. Syed Akhter Hossain, Head, Department of CSE, DIU, Farhana Helal Mehtab, Associate Professor & Head, Dept. of Law, DIU and Barrister A B M Hamidul Mishbah, Chief Executive and Founder of BIPF chaired the panel as speakers.

Students articulated their experiences with regard to the Intellectual property Rights (IPR) violations and piracy in the information superhighway and expressed their concerns in resisting the prevailing cyber crimes. Besides, participants in the session also expressed their opinions and perception regarding the immediate, practical and efficient implementation of Intellectual Property Law in Bangladesh.

Students believe that mass awareness on IP has now become a bare necessity as Bangladesh is progressing rapidly towards becoming an ICT and innovation driven country. Graduates aspiring to be IT entrepreneurs or professionals thus urged the concerned authorities to come forward and provide them the much needed platform and environment for ICT development.

Students from the Department of CSE and Department of Law and faculty members of DIU and representatives from BIPF attended the session.
