    IPR disputes may look private, involve element of public interest: Delhi HC chief justice

    Delhi High Court Chief Justice D N Patel on Saturday said the disputes of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) may look private in nature but they also involve an element of public interest. Delivering the welcome speech at the "National Seminar on Adjudication of IPR Disputes in India", Justice Patel said protection of intellectual property does not only include business opportunities but also the sense of mental satisfaction of the creator. "IPR is not a simple subject, this field is undoubtedly a complex one with no geographical boundaries. Undeniably, the disputes relating to intellectual property may look private in nature but in reality, most of the time, they also involve an element of public interest," he said. While Chief Justice of India (CJI) N V Ramana was the chief guest, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was the guest of honour.

    Several market associations in the national capital are hopeful that their business will be back on track, which was affected due to the COVID-19 restrictions, after the city government decided to withdraw all curbs, including night curfew. On Friday, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), chaired by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and attended by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, decided to withdraw all restrictions from Monday, reduce the fine for not wearing masks from Rs 2,000 to Rs 500 and resume physical classes in Delhi schools from April 1. Ashok Randhawa, president of the Sarojini Nagar mini-market traders’ association, said that the lifting of the night curfew comes as the "biggest" relief. “We welcome this move by the Delhi government, the lieutenant governor and the DDMA. With the lifting of the night curfew, we will get more time to do business. During weekdays, most of the customers come to the market for shopping after their office hours. As the restrictions were in place and the market used to close by 8 pm, many of them returned home without shopping.
