Judgement expected to have far reaching impact on pricing and benefit consumers.
In a landmark judgement, a Division Bench of the Delhi High Court has ruled that parallel importation is authorised under Indian trademark laws and does not infringe the trademark of the rights-holder. In an appeal filed by Kapil Wadhwa, Director of Champion Computers, the Bench of Justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Siddharth Mridul overruled the findings of a Single Judge, who had held in February 2012 that all imports of trademarked goods into India had to take place through the authorised distribution chain of the trademark-holder Samsung Electronics Ltd. or with their permission, failing which imports would amount to infringement under the trademark law.
