Since mid-April this year, the automation system for trademark
registration and management has been in the process of
comprehensive upgrading. Serious technical malfunctions during the
upgrading process led to a cease of work like acceptance of the
trademark applications for registration, examination and
adjudication on trademark applications, production of trademark
registration certificates, acceptance of trademark appeals and
reviews, and adjudication on trademark appeals and reviews.
For the time being, partial trademark businesses, such as
examination and adjudication on trademark applications, have been
recovered in the recent days. However, the trademark businesses
such as acceptance of the trademark applications for registration,
production of trademark registration certificates, acceptance of
trademark appeals and reviews, and adjudication on trademark
appeals and reviews still cannot be conducted in a normal way. The
State Administration for Industry and Commerce hereby deeply
apologizes for any inconvenience where the above may have brought
to the public.
We will continue to proceed with the system recovery, and strive
to return to normal businesses as soon as possible.
It is hereby noticed.

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.
