Monsanto Plea to Enforce BT Cotton Seed Patent

intellectual property law, Monsanto patent lawyer, Monsanto patent agent, Monsanto patent attorney

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

Title: METHOD AND DEVICE TO CONTROL VEHICLE BEHAVIOUR

Assignee: Barelli, Giuseppe (Via Baldanzese 127/b, 50041 Calenzano (FI), IT)

Publication Date: 13 Dec 2017

Abstract:

This abstract is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed System Description section. The abstract is not intended to identify key features of the claimed subject matter. Disclosed in this paper is a vehicle performance control device conceived to autonomously determine a safe, economic and eco-sustainable driving behaviour to reduce the mechanical stress, the wear and the maintenance cost of vehicles. The invention provides a vehicle performance control device arranged between the vehicle’s Pedal Interface (PI) including the cruise control, the speed limitation and the speed control systems, or a combination of these, and the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The control device autonomously and dynamically acts on the functional status of the cruise control, the speed limitation or the speed control system to modulate the vehicle’s performance. The performance is tuned depending on the current vehicle’s position, speed, acceleration, inclination and pose respect to the ground. For example, the vehicle’s max speed can be limited in specific geographic areas or during specific time intervals when the driver is supposed to drive improperly, excessively were off the vehicle, or parts of it, or stress the mechanics. The performance limitation can be turned off manually by the drivers for safety reasons, remotely by fleet’s managers or fleet’s management systems , or automatically by the system whenever the context requires the entire engine power to get the vehicle working properly. For example the engine performance will be not limited if the vehicle gets in an uphill over a certain inclination threshold to avoid stops due to torque outages. The control device embeds a communication unit able to connect to the internet, exchange data with personal computers, diagnostic tools or personal devices such as smartphones and tablets. The control device provides all the useful information for the estimation of the vehicle’s status, the driver’s behaviours and the induced mechanical stress and wear off. The communication unit is intended to exchange data for the monitoring of the vehicle’s status, its performance and for the tuning of the control unit’s strategy. The communication can be automatically scheduled by the system itself, attempted by the remote fleet’s managers or the fleet’s management systems, or performed by humans operators or the connected remote devices on requests. A human machine interface provides visual, acoustic or haptic feedbacks, or a combination of these, to the driver on the status of the control device, the estimated level of wear or mechanical stress induced on the vehicle or part of the vehicle, the drive safety, efficiency and the eco-sustainability.

Facebook v/s ConnectU Mediation Case study

 

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.

    2). Copyright Filing:

    A Copyright is an exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the creator of original artistic work for the use and distribution of the artistic work for a limited period of time. Copyright is a form of intellectual property, copyright are considered territorial rights,which means that they don’t extend beyond the territory of a specific jurisdiction. Copyright does not protect merely utilitarian articles, ideas, facts, or formulas. Since food is a useful article, copyright law will apply only if the food incorporates highly creative features that are separable (either physically or conceptually) from the food’s utilitarian features.

    In food industries,  chefs sometimes borrow and build upon ideas from others. Properly applied, intellectual property law is flexible enough to protect highly creative food designs from substantial copying. Copyright filing is important because a chef who, without permission, creates a derivative food design that is substantially similar to another’s copyright-protected food design or other work could be at risk for copyright infringement claims.

    Cooking is also a “ART”.

    Protect your art by filing a COPYRIGHT.

    Apply for Copyright Registration at Tech Corp International Strategist India TCIS, India.

Electric vehicles and the Future

Electric vehicles and the Future 

The popularity of electric vehicles has shot up over the last few years with a great shift in the public’s attitude towards electric vehicles and a constantly improving public recharging system. Electric cars and trucks are powered by electricity and are cleaner and cheaper to drive than conventional vehicles.  With a rapid increase in the use of personal vehicles around the world, the demand for fuel is also increasing. Transportation accounts for about one-fifth of global energy use, and passenger vehicles account for about ten percent of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. In such a scenario, electric vehicles hold significant potential for increasing energy security, cutting emissions and improving local air quality.

Electric vehicles is a broad term that refers to a wide range of cars and other vehicles. However electric vehicles are of following types:

  1. Hybrid-electric vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine system with an electric propulsion system to reduce fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions. These advanced vehicles cut fuel use and costs while maintaining performance, protecting public health and the environment.
  2. Plug-in hybrids are hybrids with high capacity batteries that can be charged by plugging them into an electrical outlet or charging station for short-range travel on battery power alone.
  3. Battery electric vehicle run entirely on battery power, utilizing chemical energy stored in rechargeable battery packs thereby producing zero tailpipe emissions. They are recharged from an electrical outlet.
  4. Fuel cell vehicles uses a fuel cell instead of an electrical battery. Fuel cell electric vehicles are powered by hydrogen. Unlike conventional vehicles which run on gasoline or diesel, fuel cell vehicles combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, which runs a motor.

Electric vehicles have several advantages over conventional vehicles like electric vehicles are energy efficient and environment friendly providing performance benefits and reduced energy dependence. However the market of electric vehicles is still developing, and there are many battery related challenges, particularly with technology integration, optimization, and scale-up.

Balancing PATENTS & Affordable DRUGS

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.

Innovation in the Mining Sector

India is a mineral rich country. The Mining Industry contributes significantly to the economy of India and provides basic raw materials to many important industries.  The distribution of minerals in India is uneven and many areas are yet to be fully explored. Exploration activities in India are mostly carried out by Geological Survey of India (GSI), Mining Exploration Corporation Limited (MECL), various State Directorates of Geological Mining (DGMs), public sector undertakings (PSU) and private sector entities both domestic and subsidiaries of many global companies.

India total land area 3.2875 million sq. km out of which, GSI has identified 0.571 million sq. km. as Obvious Geological Potential (OGP) area for minerals.

What are the reasons to invest in Mining Sector?

India has vast mineral potential  and Under the “Make In India Initiative” there is an ease of doing business in India.

For the companies interested in mining or for the raw material for their industry, Mining Lease & Licence grant  is done through auctions.

An Inter-ministerial Group facilitator is established by law for expediting the clearances and approvals in India.

The Geological Survey of India (GSI) has identified about 100 blocks for the exploration companies to venture into the revenue share model as enabled by the National Mineral Exploration Policy, 2016.

Mining leases in India are granted for longer and stable tenure of 50 years.

The demand for various metals and minerals is growing substantially. The recent innovations in the mining sector in US are:
