India

As a country hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, India has experienced a significant economic downturn amid drawn-out lockdowns. Even so, the e-commerce industry is booming as consumers favour online stores over physical shops. Personal protective equipment, disinfectants and other medical supplies are high on shopping lists, something that infringers are taking advantage of – this in turn has led to concerns about the effectiveness and safety of such products sold online. However, rights holders will be glad to hear that Indian courts are recognising how important it is to deter infringers and are becoming increasingly willing to grant punitive damages, especially against repeat offenders. In other news, Intellectual Property India (IPIndia) is seeing a growing number of applications related to store layout protection since the Taj Mahal Palace hotel succeeded in registering its architectural design back in 2016. Store layout marks can be registered as 3D marks, although many are still being rejected due to a lack of proven distinctiveness.
