Aditi Singh

The Delhi High Court has remarked that in spite of the Supreme Court’s intervention, no progress has been made to strengthen the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) or expedite the appointment process of its members. (Merck Sharp & Donne Corp vs UOI)

The Court has opined,

“..the purpose of the IPAB is for speedy disposal of appeals and rectification applications.. However, this purpose has been completely set at naught owing to the manner in which the IPAB has been functioning since the time it has been constituted.”
