New Delhi: India is poised to rewrite the intellectual property law in the wake of the Supreme Judicial Tribunal’s landmark judgement, which overturned the country’s previous regime on intellectual property.
The government’s push for a new law is being spearheaded by the Supreme Courts’ new chief justice, R.K. Pillai.
He has appointed a committee headed by Chief Justice Ranjit Kumar Datta, a lawyer who previously worked for the National Legal Services Authority, as the body to oversee drafting of a new bill.
The committee has been given the task of drafting the bill, which is expected to be completed by September.
The move will mark the end of the government’s decade-long fight to rewrite India’s IP law, which has left the countrys largest IT firms and service providers in the dark about how it will affect their businesses.
Pillai said the law will be made uniform across India, but there would be some exceptions.
The committee has suggested that the new law should contain provisions for “reasonable compensation” for “legitimate intellectual property” claims.
The new law would also require the government to collect and publish data on the infringement of intellectual property rights and the infringement caused by infringement, Pillai said.
He added that he hoped the committee would “examine the scope of copyright infringement in India, and the importance of protecting the rights of creators, the right to fair use, the availability of legitimate content and the availability and quality of intellectual works.”
The Supreme Court’s landmark decision has created a sea change in the Indian legal system.
It is expected that as a result, a new version of the IP law will come into force by the end, likely by the year-end.
The current version is due to expire in 2020.
The case that changed India’s legal landscape in the 1990s and 2000s was a case involving the U.S. entertainment giant Warner Music, which had accused the then-government of infringing copyright in music.
The Supreme Court ruled in 1999 that Warner Music could no longer rely on the “fair use” doctrine that had allowed the entertainment company to make money by selling CDs and other music downloads.
The ruling was controversial, with many believing that it had weakened the music industry’s ability to control what its creators could produce.
In 2002, the U,S.
Supreme Court issued a landmark decision that established a new copyright protection law.
In a landmark ruling that has now been upheld in the courts, the court declared that the “artistic” element in works of authorship was a core part of copyright, and that works of literary, dramatic, and artistic expression were protected under copyright.
