The world of Intellectual property is vividly dynamic and ever-growing field of technology that provides its benefits to the mankind as well as benefits the creator with the prosperity and name and fame together. Patents can never be stagnant as the very nature of patenting is the innovation and novelty. The new developing areas of today’s era of technology that bring us to the three focus areas of Gene Patenting, biotechnology patents and Green patents. A patent is considered to be a negative right that excludes everybody else from the usage except the patent owner. This suggests us the importance of every patent that such strong protection is required and granted by every jurisdiction around the world. Gene patenting is related to the human body and biology which has been an ethical issue since ages which is still widely discussed among the Intellectual property fraternity. The consequences of cloning the genes are widespread and it is always a task to settle a dispute between a patent owner and a patent examiner. Thus the biotechnology and gene patenting essentially deals with the biological processes and the reproduction and diagnostic techniques and other incidental areas attached to it. Also the Green patents are the patents that support the green developments or technologies like the wind, thermal, waste, solar etc that help the cause of development but not at the cost of environment rather in support of the same. The article would try and discuss the various facets that have been in the public domain in relation to above stated patents, their issues and the benefits to the modern age.
