Full Copy of Publication: Local working requirements and enforceability of patents: an Indian perspective of challenges and opportunities surrounding a granted patent
This article provides a basic overview regarding local working requirements of granted patents in India in light of recent developments, and a brief analysis of enforceability of patents in India.
Originally published here.
Generally, “Local Working” refers to the conditions imposed by some countries on patentees that their patented product or process must be used or produced in the patent granting country. It is also known as commercial working (or exploitation) of a patent in a country.
With regards to the enforceability of patents in India, it is crucial to note that since the advent of a pharmaceutical patent regime in 2005, the number of patent litigations in India has witnessed a rapid increment. However, courts have yet not received a level wherein the correct standards for the grant (or non grant) of an injunction or a restraining order may be determined.
