Description
Due to globalisation of trade and commerce, the Trade and Merchandise Marks Act 1958 was repealed and replaced by the Trade Marks Act 1999 which is closely resembling the provisions of the Trade Marks Act 1994 of the U.K. opening up opportunities for Indian products and services to be projected to the developed countries like Europe, the U.K. and U.S.A. where traders and consumers are highly brand conscious.
Ramifications of the issues
The instant edition provides a comprehensive account of the subject. The author took every step to produce systematically all the issues relating to the subject such as registration of trade marks and its opposition, assignment and transmission of trade marks, infringement of trade mark and action for it, collective marks, deceptive similarity, goodwill, licensing of trade marks, offences and penalties, passing off, threat of legal proceedings, trade liable are some of them. Besides all those, the author gave an expertise exposition of the essential features of the European Law, Unfair Competition Law, Trade Dress and Geographical Indications of Goods etc., which make the work more useful. The book has exhaustively referred to a large number of decisions of the Trade Marks Act 1994 of the U.K. which fulfilled the needs of judicial interpretation of the Act of 1999. Decisions of the U.S.A. are also referred where relevant and instructive.
