Abstract: Amongst the challenges that actors in the software side of information technology are experiencing, none is more contentious than the issues it raises for intellectual property. The controversy pits administration against faculty, scientists against humanists and academic values against financial interests, employees against management, and software developers against corporate houses. The conflicting global intellectual property practice in the case of software has resulted in multiple schools of thought, each providing their way of how it must be managed. In this paper, three areas of concern in intellectual property practice, business, technology and legal in nature, are addressed .The paper aims to describe these concerns and provides clarity regarding the polarization of schools of thought in intellectual property practice. Through a better understanding of the global and domestic situation, the authors hope to motivate a note of concern amongst those with a weak intellectual property focus in the Indian software sector.
