The policy notes that India has an IP regime that is effective, robust, in consonance with its national development priorities and conforming to its international treaties and obligations.

The maximum fear was on the section-17 and more specifically about section-17 (b), which is unique and not seen in most of the liability laws in other countries.

An "and" was missing at the end of sub section (a) giving an impression that the two sub-sections (a and ...
