Blog Entry Thomas Abraham's Rebuttal on Parallel Importation
by Pranesh Prakash published Feb 10, 2011 last modified Aug 04, 2011 04:47 AM — filed under: , ,
We engaged in an e-mail conversation with Thomas Abraham, the managing director of Hachette India, on the issue of parallel importation of books into India. We thought it would be in the public interest to publish a substantive part of that conversation. In this post he points at great length how our arguments are faulty. While we still believe that he doesn't succeed, we hope this will clarify matters a bit.

by Pranesh Prakash published Jan 25, 2011 last modified Aug 04, 2011 04:45 AM — filed under: , ,
There has been much controversy lately with some publishers trying to stop the government from amending s.2(m) of the Indian Copyright Act, clarifying that a parallel import will not be seen as an "infringing copy".

by Pranesh Prakash published Dec 16, 2010 last modified Sep 06, 2011 07:50 AM — filed under: , , , ,
The Rajya Sabha Standing Committee on Human Resource Development (under which ministry copyright falls) recently tabled their report on the Copyright (Amendment) Bill, 2010 before Parliament. There is much to be applauded in the report, including the progressive stand that the Committee has taken on the issue of providing access by persons with disabilities. This post, however, will concern itself with highlighting some of the problems with that report, along with some very important considerations that got missed out of the entire amendment debate.
