Call for Papers: MHRD Chair on IPR and NLSIU, Bangalore’s Roundtable on Evolving Jurisprudence on Patent Remedies [March 25-26]: Submit by Feb 18


There is a relentless effort among public and private companies to build high technology and complex products and these products may embody several patented inventions/ technologies.

Thus, such products are generally patent rigorous (PR) products. It is not uncommon to see such patent rigorous products embodying multiples of thousands of patents.

For example, a mobile device such as a smartphone is estimated to be impacted by 2.5 lakh patents and a laptop is estimated to embody more 250 standards and several of these standards may require consideration of thousands of patents.

These high technology products are very different compared to other non-patent intensive (NPI) products such as an electric bulb or a medical drug, which may embody one (or very few) patents.

The existence of such NPI products may be substantially equated to the practice of a patent (or very few patents).

For example, Edison’s the electric bulb embodied only a few patents and predominantly a single patented (US 223898, Jan 1880) invention could be equated to Edison’s electric bulb.

These products (PR and NPI) are very different from each other from the perspective of patents embodied in such products. A patent embodied in a PR type product contributes to a fraction of the total value of the PR product and a patent embodied in a NPI product contributes to a substantial value of the PRI product.

This roundtable has an objective of assessing/reviewing emerging jurisprudence, practices and changing landscape while shaping patent remedies in India.

Patent remedies will have a major impact on Innovation and IP protection as we are move up the innovation value chain while embarking on a “Digital India”, “Make in India”, “Design-in-India”, “Start-up India”, journey.

This roundtable is intended to bring together honourable members of the judiciary, enforcement agencies such as Competition Commission of India (CCI) and members of appellate boards such as IPAB to review this subject.


Researched papers on the topic (not limited to) mentioned are called for paper presentation in the technical sessions of the conference.

The themes of the conference are:

• Patent remedies in India
• Grant of Injunction in Patents Cases in India and its impact
