Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On Whether The Jurisdiction Of The High Court For Filing Trademark Rectification Petition Is Determined Based On Where The Appropriate Office Is Situated?

Featuring: Shivanshi Gupta

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar- General IP’ (LIS-GIP) was conducted by Shivanshi Gupta, Trainee Associate, on “Whether the Jurisdiction of the High Court for filing Trade Mark Rectification Petition is determined based on where the Appropriate Office is situated?”. The seminar explored the relevant provisions of the Trade Marks Act, 1999, which discusses the rectification and cancellation of a trademark registration. The seminar focused on decisions where courts have observed the dynamic effect of registration of the trademark for determining the jurisdiction of the High Court in relation to trademark cancellation petitions. The session concluded with a discussion of the recent developments in the judicial outlook that where a person’s commercial interests are being affected within the jurisdiction of a High Court, the said High Court should have territorial jurisdiction to entertain a trademark cancellation petition regardless of where the Appropriate Office is situated.
