Summary note
Ndia's post-TRIPS (Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) patent law reforms, which incorporates a remarkable array of flexibilities, is seen as a counter-harmonization measure in direct opposition to the dominant model of patent law pioneered by the United States. India's response, which represents an alternative model of confirming to the TRIPS Agreement, has seen stiff resistance in the form of counter-provisions in Free Trade Agreementsentered by the United States and other countries. This book explains why India took that unique route in patent law, details the provisions that made the Indian patent law unique, and charters the course for countries awaiting to follow the Indian example.
