India is a population of 1.35 billion people. I personally believe we need to draw a line as to what is the best price for #Monsanto technology sub-licence fees. The intent of Monsanto was to charge a higher trait fee under the sub-licence given to the Indian companies to use its seed technology.
Draw a line as to what is the best price for #Monsanto technology sub-licence fee
Any technology company entering India should see the holistic picture and see the quantity of its outreach to the mass population.
According to the judgement, the three Indian companies would pay trait fees to Monsanto according to government-set rates. #goodjudgement #Iamimpressed
The idea of getting patents is a good moves from the point of view of enforcing the patent rights. Let’s talk about haptic technology patented by Immersion.U.S. Patent No. 8,619,051 titled ‘Haptic Feedback System and Stored Effects‘ which deploys feedback to a device by responding with a vibration and the ability to store the feedback patterns and effects.

The first thought that comes to creative intellectual mind in Industry 4 Era is Internet and combination with so many souls in the online world. What is Software? What is Software-Hardware Product? How to deploy Software-Hardware Patents?
Pharma Sector in India is caught in the debate over the enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and access to affordable medicines. Affordable drugs are necessary and is a matter of great concern for the healthcare system. There is a need to refine the Drug policy in India in the light of growing concerns about patent filing in the pharma sector and access to cheap medicines.
Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights encourages companies to invest in research and development. Most companies invest in research and development so that they can reap profits from the product developed. Patenting the product or process ensures that others do not replicate the concerned product to gain a share of the potential profits. But the critics of enforcement of intellectual property rights in the pharma sector argue that patents encourage monopolies. The pharmaceutical companies who patent drugs can sell those drugs at quite high prices because of no competition involved in the marketing of the drug.
The incomplete understanding of intellectual property rights (IPRs) is the real issue that India’s drug industry is facing. Currently, only 5% of medicines used in India are said to be patent-protected. Breakthrough therapies are being developed in the world but why these therapies are not made available to India but are being introduced in other countries?
It is observed that the new drugs and therapies encounter delay in marketing approval in India despite their global launch. Moreover the new drugs that are launched in India are produced and sold as generic versions by Indian manufacturers within one year of their introduction. Generic medicines are the copies of brand name counterparts of drugs originally developed by other companies. The rapid appearance of generic versions of medicines and delays in marketing approval display a lack of faith in the patent regime.
Patents are important in innovative sectors like pharmaceutical industry as they provide incentives for companies to invest in those sectors. Investment in innovation, research and development is an essential component of supporting an innovative and enterprising economy.
In order to link medical innovation with affordable treatment a supportive role by the Government is required. The government should design a price-control mechanism without tampering the grant of patents. The government should deploy tools to reduce uncertainty in Intellectual Property Rights and to build an ecosystem that promotes medical innovation. We must achieve a balance between the current and future needs of patients and the timely introduction of existing and new pharmaceutical drugs.
Mediation is a potentially efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional litigation and arbitration. The use of mediation has become increasingly popular in several areas of dispute resolution and one such area is that of intellectual property (IP).
As the field of Intellectual property is vast, here the importance of mediation as an alternative to both litigation and arbitration in patent infringement disputes is discussed.
A patent can be defined as a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or assignee for a limited period of time in exchange for detailed public disclosure of an invention typically for 20 years during which the product or process cannot be exploited by others.
Patent disputes typically arise when patent rights are breached i.e Patent infringement occurs when a third party makes, uses, sells, offers to sell a patented invention without the patent owner’s permission. The scope of the patented invention or the extent of protection is defined in the claims of the granted patent. Therefore, patent infringement disputes involve courts interpreting and evaluating the claims of a patent on which the protection is sought. This is a complex procedure and the litigation process often become expensive and complicated. In the defense of infringement party allegedly responds with a counterclaim of patent invalidity and a defendant involved in patent litigation may ask to reexamine the patent being litigated. During re-examination the court will reconsider the validity of original patent and whether it meets the statutory requirements of novelty, inventiveness and non-obviousness. If a defendant successfully pleads the defence of a patent the patent owner will lose not only the case but also the patent itself.
Alternatively, mediation in patent infringement disputes can save time and money by avoiding the interpretation and reinterpretation of patent claims. Also, mediation removes the risk of patent invalidation and promotes creative solution in patent disputes. Moreover, unlike litigation, mediation process is confidential.
For example- A company holding patent rights for a technology founds that its competing company is selling the same technology without any license. The concerned company threatens to file patent infringement case in all jurisdictions in which the company is holding patent rights. But the mounting cost of legal action would take a toll on the company and the litigation process is very time consuming. In such a situation, mediation is instrumental in transforming a hostile situation in which the parties were preparing to engage in prolonged and expensive litigation into one in which they were able to conclude an arrangement which suits the business interests of both parties and ensures the profitable use of the technology in the service of those interests.
Mediation is a great idea and can offer people a way of working things out without spending lots of money which could be better spent elsewhere to grow a business.
The twin brothers- Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss claimed that Mark Zuckerberg stole the idea for Facebook from them and had brought Facebook against the Winklevoss’s company- ConnectU. The twin brothers initiated a law suit against Mr. Zuckerberg inorder to negotiate a settlement, accusing it of unfair business practices.
The district court in California ordered the parties to mediate.
Before the mediation began, both the parties signed a confidentiality agreement that stated that all statements made during mediation will not be made public and were inadmissible in any arbitral, judicial, or other proceeding. After all the arguments and discussions, a settlement agreement was signed that between both the parties and Winklevosses gave up ConnectU in return for cash and Facebook shares. The Settlement Agreement purported to end all disputes between the parties.
Just after signing the agreement, Winklevosses affirmed that there was a difference in their understanding of the value of the shares of Facebook that they had agreed to accept and that they had been defrauded (in violation of Section 10(b)-5) in the mediation. The twins claimed that Facebook led them to believe during the mediation discussions that Facebook’s share value was $35.90, even though Facebook’s internal tax valuation had determined its share value to be $8.88. Had they known about this valuation during the mediation, they claim, they would never have signed the Settlement Agreement.
Section 10(b)-5 is a regulation that deems it to be illegal for anybody to directly or indirectly use any measure to defraud, make false statements, omit relevant information or otherwise conduct operations of business that would deceive another person; in relation to conducting transactions involving stock and other securities. A party negotiating an exchange of shares to settle a lawsuit could violate Rule 10b-5 by misstating or hiding information that would materially change the other side’s evaluation of the settlement.
In support of these claims, the Winklevosses proffered evidence of what was said and not said during the mediation. However the statements were held inadmissible based on the confidentiality agreement signed by the parties that stated that “All statements made during the course of the mediation or in mediator follow-up thereafter at any time prior to complete settlement of the matter are privileged settlement discussions and are non-discoverable and inadmissible for any purpose including in any legal proceeding. Without such evidence, their securities claims must fail.
Further, the Winklevoss twins sought to invalidate the settlement agreement under Section 29(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that voids any settlement agreement made in violation of Rule 10b-5. Winklevosses hired a team of lawyers and a financial advisor. Finally, the Court noted that the current valuation of Facebook appears to be three times what the Winklevosses were claiming they were entitled to demonstrating the value of settlement to be $160 million, that was mere $65 million at the time of the settlement.
However, a number of lessons can be learnt from this mediation case study. Whatever happens in mediation stays in mediation. Parties need to be sure that all essential information is included in the settlement agreement. The settlement agreement should be clearly-written. Since no statements made during mediation will be admissible and settlement agreement is the only admissible and enforceable document of mediation.
