Enercon explained – patent oppositions and revocations in India

Presented by

Managing IP in association with Lakshmi Kumaran & Sridharan

About this talk

The recent decisions of the Intellectual Property Appellate Board in the Enercon revocation cases have important implications for the development of patent law in India. Unlike the previous decisions on patent law on national interest, these are the first set of substantive decisions clarifying the law relating to interpretation of claims, identification of person skilled in the art, common general knowledge and obviousness. The webinar will provide the background of the cases, various issues decided by the Appellate Board and strategies for handling oppositions and revocations in India with insights on importance of substantive and procedural compliances during prosecution. Speakers Peter Ollier, Asia editor, Managing IP R Parthasarathy, senior partner and litigator, Lakshmi Kumaran & Sridharan D P Vaidya, head, engineering, Lakshmi Kumaran & Sridharan Bertram Huber, principal, IP*SEVA

‘What keeps in-house counsel awake at night?’ is one way to summarise our editorial focus. We aim to track the strategies of in-house IP counsel within companies, big and small, by speaking directly to them about the day-to-day issues they face. Law firms need practical information that they can apply when advising their clients, and companies find value in benchmarking their strategies with those of their peers. This is why we have adopted this approach in our subscription-based service. Our content is not reactionary or news-focused, but informed and actionable. In this pursuit of in-house intelligence, we also publish several surveys each year that include exclusive data focusing on specific industry issues. These polls allow us to provide an accurate snapshot of how in-house counsel perceive and act on a given issue. Our other core objective is interviewing senior judges, whose insight is valuable for many IP stakeholders. We find that the judiciary are vital for giving counsel, private and in-house, highly useful information for when they are locked in litigation. We continue to speak regularly with IP offices too. Regardless of its specific intent, our coverage is global and encompasses (but is not limited to) the following areas: Copyright; Data; Designs; Patents; Trademarks; and Trade secrets
