All civilizations used knowledge formally and informally in economic growth and in social development. In today?s knowledge age intellect and creative, innovative and inventive ideas have been recognized and leveraged to become a primary source of advantage and wealth. Essence of this emphasis on knowledge lies in the management of information. The Information Communication Technology (ICT) revolution at the end of 20th century has revamped the ways in which information can be created, harvested, assembled, combined, manipulated, enhanced and channeled. This has increased the efficiency and effectiveness of using knowledge for economic growth and development to the extent that it is becoming the leading factor for adding value and for wealth creation in the market economy. All aspects of human lives have been profoundly affected, be it agriculture, health or environment. Legal issues of protection of information of bio-diversity and genetic pool, intellectual property and indigenous knowledge are major concerns today.
