4. 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 ecommerce/ 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 & egovernance 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 MSOffice, C-Language, we have introduced Lab sessions in Legal Databases, Hacking
and its prevention, Encryption and Decryption of Digital Signatures based on RSAalgorithm 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.

EVALUATION
The evaluation system of these diploma programmes is designed to test

assessments as well as term-end examinations.
Internal Assessments (Assignments):
Term-end Examinations : Performance of the student will also be assessed through a
term-end examination and student should score minimum of 40% marks out of 60.
Only those students who satisfactorily complete the contact sessions 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 : The University will conduct classes
for 5-8 days abroad, if the number of foreign / NRI students are more than 15 at a
place. In individual cases 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 practicals, (b) Internal assessment or Assignments and (c)
Performance in the term-end examination, in the ratio 10:30:60.
The final result in each course will thus be calculated in the following manner:
A student is declared passed in a course only if he/she secures a minimum of 40%
marks in all, provided that he/she secures a minimum of 25 marks at the term-end
examinations. Students with less than 40% marks aggregate in any course taken by
him/her may appear for re-examination in the next term-end examination.

improvement of marks for assignments, contact classes, practical sessions (wherever
compulsory) or for Project Work/Project Reports.
Re-counting :

totalling 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.1,000/- per paper. The results of re-counting will
normally be communicated to the students before the commencement of next
examinations. If any variation is found as a result of re-counting, the university will
accept the higher of the two, and a revised marks memo will be issued to the
students. 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. There will be supplementary exams for
all courses at the end of the year for backlog papers only. All students are expected
to complete their course requirement within a period of 3 academic years. Those
who do not complete the programme in all respects can re-enrol themselves for the
programme by paying of the Programme Fee. In such cases study material will not
be issued again.

Provisional Certificate-cum-memorandum of marks will be issued only after the
student completes all course requirements.

Final Diploma Certificate will be issued on payment of Rs.500/- towards the final
Diploma Certificate within one year after successful completion of the Programme.
Duplicate Diploma/Certificate :
The Enrolment card, certificate of diploma, marks memo, will be issued only once.
If the student losses the Enrolment card / marks memo, the student can request the
Director (CDVL) for a duplicate on payment of Rs.500/- 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.800/- through a Demand Draft.

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