Writer Chetan Bhagat has been accused of plagiarism by a Bengaluru-based author, 26-04-2017

EW DELHI:  Writer Chetan Bhagat has been accused of plagiarism by a Bengaluru-based author, who claims that she has filed a lawsuit granting temporary injunction restraining sales of Mr Bhagat's new book 'One Indian Girl'. Mr Bhagat has denied the charges of plagiarism.
 

 

"I had filed an original suit seeking a permanent injunction restraining Chetan Bhagat and the publisher from selling 'One Indian Girl' and also sought damages worth Rs. 1 lakh. The court has granted a temporary injunction restricting the sales," said Bengaluru-based Anvita Bajpai, in a Facebook post. Ms Bajpai, like Mr Bhagat, is an alumnus of IIT and IIM.

Ms Bajpai said that "characters, places and emotional flow" of Mr Bhagat's book have been plagiarised from her book 'Life, Odds and Ends'. She further claims that she had gifted a copy of the book to Mr Bhagat in 2014 during a book fest in Bengaluru.

Mr Bhagat has, however, refuted all charges.

"This is deeply unfortunate. This is, for one, an absolute surprise for me as I have never read any of this author's works," the bestselling author said. 

 


"My stories are always original - including 'One Indian Girl' - and it is unthinkable for me to do anything like what is suggested," Mr Bhagat added. He further described the controversy as a "misunderstanding" and stated that his publisher's legal team will be taking necessary steps to mitigate the circumstance.

 


His publisher, Rupa Publications, refused to comment on the issue. 

Yesterday, the University of Delhi decided to include Chetan Bhagat's debut novel 'Five Point Someone' in its English curriculum for undergraduates.

Dear All

 

the Trademark Rules, 2017 have come into force from , 6th March, 2017. The new Rules published by the Department of Industrial Promotion and Policy(DIPP)  would replace the Trademark Rules, 2002.  The amended Rules aim at simplifying the registration procedure, with fewer forms and improved online filing process.

A few key highlights of the Trademark Rules, 2017 are listed below:

Official Fees:

The new Rules have substantially hiked the trademark registration costs in India. The revised costs for certain specific actions have been given below:

  1. For filing a new application on behalf of a Company or trust or partnership: Rs 10,000
  2. For filing renewal application: Rs 10,000
  3. For recording an assignment: Rs 10,000
  4. For adding a person as a registered user: Rs 5,000
  5. For extension of time, certified copy of registration certificate or duplicate registration certificate: Rs 1,000
  6. For expedited processing of an application: Rs 40,000
  7. Handling fees for Madrid Applications: Rs 5000

Start Up Discounts:

The News rules offers 50% discounts on the official fees to the individuals, start-ups and small enterprises for new applications as well as for filing applications for expedited processing.

Concession on Online filing:

With the objective of increasing online filings, 10% discount on official fees has been given to applicants who are filing the applications or forms online.

 Expedited processing of applications:

Rule 34 provides for expedited processing of application which replaces the earlier provision for expedited examination of application. Under the new Rule, an Applicant can file a petition to expedite the registration process of an application which means expedited examination, consideration of the response to examination report by the TM Office, scheduling of show cause hearing, publication and the opposition thereto.

Well-Known Marks:

Rule 124 allows any interested person to file an application (Form TM –M) to declare a mark as well-known mark. On receipt of any such application the Registrar shall determine whether the mark is well-known or not based on the provisions of Section 11 (6) to Section 11(9) of the Trademarks Act, 1999. Additionally, prior to making a decision, the Registrar must invite objections from general public.

Video Conferencing:

The new Rules direct the Registrar to conduct show cause/ opposition hearings through video conferencing.
