IP News


Recognizing the need to further advocate for strong IP protection and harmonization as Brexit negotiations unfold, the INTA Board of Directors approved a Brexit position paper at its meeting on 7 November last. 

In the position paper, INTA submits that both the EU and UK should “support, promote, and safeguard the following core principles for brand owners and right-holders during the negotiations as well as when ‘Brexit’ becomes effective: minimal disruption of trade, minimum costs, maximum retention of rights, and maximum transparency and legal clarity.”

Data Protection Framework in the offing in India - Government seeks public comments

The Government of India is seeking comments on a draft White Paper on a proposed Data Protection Framework on principles to be considered for data protection in India to address the increasing concerns on secure digital transactions and data privacy.

Earlier this year, the Government constituted a Committee of Experts under the chairmanship of former Supreme Court Justice Shri B N Srikrishna to suggest a draft Data Protection Bill. The proposed White Paper intends to cover key principles like technology agnosticism and flexibility, applicability to both private sector and government entities, informed consent, data minimization, data controller’s accountability, penalties for wrongful processing and enforcement of data protection framework by a statutory authority.

The deadline for submitting the responses is 31 December 2017 through the Web Form available at here.
