Abstract

This study is conducted to examine the perception and awareness of intellectual property rights (IPR) among university students. A survey was conducted to illicit information about IPR from two private universities’ students in Malaysia. It was discovered that university students perceived plagiarism and piracy as infringement of IPR. Therefore, provision of adequate information, active participation of government bodies and university’s authorities, as well as IPR awareness activities are three factors that will encourage IPR awareness among these university students.
