Ananth Padmanabhan, a Madras High Court advocate, has authored a most interesting book about intellectual property remedies. With over 700 pages of commentary and several annexes, Ananth’s book marks an important contribution to Indian intellectual-property scholarship. Beset by court deadlines and client demands, it is always a challenge for a practicing litigator to make any meaningful scholarly contribution. Yet, with single-minded dedication, Ananth has met that challenge by producing a lucidly written and meticulously researched book.
Unsurprisingly, Intellectual Property Rights: Infringement and Remedies has received rave reviews from several commentators including, most notably, Justice Prabha Sridevan, chairperson of the Intellectual Property Appellate Board, and Shamnad Basheer, a leading IP expert, professor at NUJS, and a contributor to this blog.
