Abstract

For the last decade, the Delhi High Court has been the leading Judicial Forum for the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights belonging to the software, music and broadcast entertainment industries. Three issues have arisen in this backdrop: implementation of special jurisdictional clauses, ‘Anton Piller’ orders & ‘John Doe’ orders. The manner in which the Delhi High Court has approached these three issues leaves much to be desired and it may be time for the Delhi High Court to issue ‘practice directions’ to ensure uniformity in the grant of such orders.
