IPR Matter: Delhi High Court Passes Adverse Order Against Life Technologies Corporation

NEW DELHI, February 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



An application seeking injunction filed by Life Technologies Corporation USA (formerly Invitrogen Corporation) against Life Technologies India Private Limited from using the marks /domains viz. Life Technologies, Life Tech, as well as domains Lifetechindia.com, Lifetechnologiesindia.co.in, LifetechnologiesIndia.Com, Gibcobrlindia.com and Invitrogenindia.com was dismissed by the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi vide its order dated January 29, 2014.

LTIPL, an Indian Company promoted by Mr. Rajan Sahni was established in 2002. Invitrogen Corporation sold out 100% shareholding of its Indian arm ATZ Lab Solutions India Private Limited (ATZ Labs) to LTIPL in December 2002. ATZ Labs (formerly Invitrogen India Pvt. Ltd and Gibcobrl India Pvt. Ltd.) was sold out lock, stock, barrel as a going concern to LTIPL.

Invitrogen Corporation (USA) merged with ABI and changed its name to LTC upon merger in November 2008. After merger it filed two cases in 2010 & 2011 respectively against ATZ Labs before National Arbitration Forum, USA (NAF) for transfer of domains (Gibcobrlindia.com and Invitrogenindia.com) which were dismissed at NAF. After dismissal of the two Petitions at the NAF, LTC then approached LTIPL in Apr 2011 so as to acquire/seek license to use the Intellectual Property of LTIPL namely Life Technologies, Lifetechindia.com, Gibcobrlindia.com, Invitrogenindia.com duly admitting and acknowledging that the above brand names/ related domains were the assets of LTIPL. After being declined by LTIPL, LTC then approached the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi for a prohibitory injunction against LTIPL and ATZ Labs from using the name Life Technologies, Life Tech, Lifetechindia.com, LifetechnologiesIndia.Com, Lifetechindia.co.in, Lifetechnologiesindia.co.in, as well as Gibcobrlindia.com and Invitrogenindia.com.

After nearly 20 months of hearing, the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi has dismissed LTC's application thereby vacating its earlier ex-parte ad-interim injunction. The Hon'ble High Court observed that the litigation commenced only after LTC had lost before NAF for taking another chance to somehow or the other get back the suit marks, domain names etc. from the defendants over which Invitrogen Corporation itself had been left with no rights much before the re-incorporation/resurrection of plaintiff no.1 in the year 2008. The Hon'ble High Court has further held that LTC themselves have accepted the position that the suit trademarks etc. stood vested in ATZ Labs/LTIPL.

Invitrogen Corporation, the US based company that had changed its name to Life Technologies Corporation (LTC) in November 2008 has recently been sold out to Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., USA on 04 Feb 2014.

ATZ Labs & LTIPL were represented at the NAF and Hon'ble High Court by Mr. Abhishek Saket of Infini Juridique a leading Corporate, IPR and Technology Law Firm in India.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
