Recently, 28 members of the Ministerial Joint Meeting on
National Intellectual Property enacted the 2010 National
Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Strategy Implementation Plan,
which went into effect on March 26, 2010. Serving as a guide for
China's IP protection program, the 2010 Implementation Plan
focuses on the following objectives:
Elevating IPR creation capability
Spurring IPR transformation and utilization
Quickening IPR legal system construction
Raising IPR law enforcement levels
Enhancing IPR administrative management
Exploiting IPR agency service
Strengthening IPR talent construction
Boosting IPR cultural building
Enlarging IPR foreign exchange cooperation
Further details regarding the 2010 Implementation Plan can be
found on the China IPR website.
On a related note, April 1, 2010 marked the 25th year since the
birth of the Chinese Patent Law. In those 25 years, the Chinese
Intellectual Property Office has received 5.95 million applications
and granted over 3.17 million patents. We at inovia wish
it a belated 25th birthday (and many more to come)!

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.
