This post was first published on 19th December, 2014.   It’s a musical world. From the pitter patter of raindrops to pulsating headaches, there is music everywhere.

Panacea of the People for More than Two Centuries

  This post was first published on 20th June, 2014.   Have you ever heard about 'Patent Medicines?' While not confusing the term with patented drugs, we should note that this term was associated with drug compounds in the 18th and the 19th century. They were not patented but Trademarked Medicines and were termed Nostrum Remedium in Latin. These medicines were sold with interesting names and tall claims of curing a long list of illnesses! Originally, patent medicines were named after the 'Letters Patent' granted by the English Crown. The first letters patent given to an inventor of a secret remedy, was issued during the late 17th century. The patent granted...

What Makes the World’s First Turbo Diesel Motorcycle Vibration Free?

This image depicts Royal Enfield's Turbo model of Bike. This image is relevant as this is the first ever diesel engine powered bike which does not vibrate. Click on this image for more information

This post was first published on 25th August, 2014.   Owing to the ever increasing gas prices, fuel efficiency offered by vehicles has become a strong deciding factor among buyers. Diesel bikes are a great benefit for people obsessed with fuel efficiency but unfortunately diesel bikes are currently not offered by any OEMs for the masses. Royal Enfield’s Taurus was the only diesel motorcycle that was in mass production until some time ago. The vibration produced by diesel engines in a motorcycle, jolts the rider and makes travel tiresome, and eventually the user may even start feeling the strain through pain in his/her elbow...

Strategy to Patent Jamun

This image depicts a bowl of jamuns. this post explores if jamuns can be patented. Click on the image to read the full post.

This post was first published on 8th November, 2012. The Jamun patent saga, earlier reported to be the subject of government revocation has spurred discussions and debates across India on various counts, ranging from mode of revocation to CSIR's blind eye to Indian applications. My attempt in this post is not to add another opinion to the existing ones but to bring forth that a composition of Jamun can be susceptible to patent protection.  All of us in India will agree that we have a ton of traditional knowledge  (TK), most of which is either untapped or unused. In fact, at...

Were the brothers (W)right?

The image depicts the Wright Brothers walking together.

This post was first published on 20th March, 2014.   Last week, my post was about the role of communication technology in making different regions of the world “excess able” from “access able”. It is important to bear in mind the role played by transportation systems in nullifying the effects of physical distance. Though different transportation means such as roadways, airways and waterways are available, when it comes to covering long distances in short time periods, aviation a.k.a. air transportation is one of the most convenient modes of transportation. The Wright brothers began efforts to invent a motor powered aircraft in the year 1899....

Myriad Genetics Case : Genetic Patentability

This post was first published on 19th August, 2013.   Finally, I have managed to read the Myriad Genetics case at peace. Off late, setting out to analyze the US Supreme Court's patent decisions has become a much easier task than earlier. Firstly, the Court has gotten clearer in the recent past, and secondly, it is no longer a one sided patent friendly Court. The decisions of the Court in KSR, Bilski, Mayo, and finally this case indicate that trend. In the backdrop, the decision in Myriad Genetics was not a surprise to a keen follower, and, upholds the inherent lacuna in...
