New .nz domain addresses available – 30 September
In case you haven't heard, as of 30 September the New
Zealand Domain Name Commission will be offering .nz domains for
registration. These new .nz domains will exist alongside the
existing .co.nz/.org.nz/.net.nz type second level domains which
many of you will already have.
What you should be deciding
If you are a New Zealand business or an international business
with a New Zealand domain presence you should be considering
whether you should replicate (or replace) your existing .co.nz
presence with a .nz domain.
If you are looking at entering the market and considering what
New Zealand domain address to use .nz presents a new option for you
Three processes for buying .nz domain
There are three registration processes running in parallel as of
30 September to be aware of:
Where no one owns a second level .nz domain for the name the
.nz domain is available as of 1pm on 30 September on a first come
first served basis;
Where you're the only owner of a second level .nz domain
for the name you can buy (or reserve for a limited time) the .nz
domain from 1pm on 30 September. But if you don't buy the
domain or reserve the domain by 30 March 2015 it's then
available to all on a first come first served basis;
Where there is more than one owner of a second level .nz domain
for the name you will need to go through a conflict process.
If you fall into that last category don't let your .co.nz
domain lapse until the conflict process is complete as it may
result in you no longer being eligible for the .nz domain.

This article enunciates the recent, much awaited, and landmark judgment delivered on September 16, 2016 by Hon'ble Delhi High Court throwing light on the important provisions of the Copyright Act, 1962.
The Patents Act 1970, along with the Patents Rules 1972, came into force on 20th April 1972, replacing the Indian Patents and Designs Act 1911. The Patents Act was largely based on the recommendations of the Ayyangar Committee Report headed by Justice N. Rajagopala Ayyangar. One of the recommendations was the allowance of only process patents with regard to inventions relating to drugs, medicines, food and chemicals.
The Policy stresses on the need for a holistic approach to be taken on legal, administrative, institutional and enforcement issues related to IP.
