My new book on patents - "The Touchstone Effect: The Impact of Pre-grant Opposition on Patents" is out! Among other things, the book explores the strategic use of pre-grant opposition as a touchstone to check the genuineness of inventions. As with my earlier book, "The Law of Patents - With a Special Focus on Pharmaceuticals in India" which is presently updated free of cost through a blog, this book too has on online companion (click here for the blog) where you can find more about the book - you can search and download more than 55 decisions of the Patent Controller on pre-grant opposition (click here).
The book is available at the LexisNexis Online Bookstore. My publishers will ship the book to any where in India for just Re 1. Keeping the touch with the difficult times that lie ahead of us, the book is priced at Rs.295 /-
