Practice Area: Intellectual Property


2022 began with several interesting decisions and developments. At the top of the list is the High Court of Delhi's efforts in establishing the Intellectual Property Division and enforcing their rules, which we believe would greatly help make Delhi an even better jurisdiction to try intellectual property cases. Other High Courts with a Commercial Division (first-instance courts for commercial, including intellectual property trials) may follow suit soon. We also track several decisions taken by the Supreme Court and the State High Courts dealing with the test of similarity in trade marks, the rights of patent holders towards the end of the term, trade mark infringement in using recycled liquor bottles, domain name issues and several others. We hope you enjoy reading this edition.
