German Minister promises to ensure Just Resolution of Ideafarms Dispute

Given that a lot of noise was being made in Germany about the lack of enforcement of IP rights in India following the Enercon and Natco decisions, it was inevitable that Germany would raise those two matters during the bilateral talks scheduled with India between May 9 and May 11. As had been predicted before in the related post, the Indian government too found in the Ideafarms dispute sufficient diplomatic ammunition to face Germany.

As per a recent report from The Economic Times, in course of the meeting that had taken place between the Indian Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma and the German Federal Minister of Economics & Technology Philipp Roessler, Sharma had raised concerns about the Ideafarms dispute and the manner in which it had been handled by the German court. He was assured that the German government would look into the matter and ensure a just resolution to the dispute.

  1. Now it comes to light that the court has distributed all the money it awarded to Ideafarms to lawyers of BOTH parties. The Ideafarms German lawyer appropriated money he collected on behalf of the company to his own account. Apparently, German law allows him to do so unilaterally without consent or bringing it to the knowledge of the client.
