Dr Asha Sundaram, Principal, Saveetha School of Law, in her special address, noted that students are the future innovators and they have the ability to shape the emerging technology. 
Former Acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court T Raja, the Chief Guest of the summit, emphasized the critical role of robust intellectual property rights in safeguarding innovation with a pointed reference to the link between innovation, economic growth, and societal progress, highlighting the need for a supportive environment and a strong legal framework.
The judge also quoted Indian Patent Act stating that frivolous things can’t be patented and wanted three important things to be followed while patenting—novelty, utility and nonobviousness.
