  • Mr Pravin Anand was recognised as the “Most Innovative Lawyer” across Asia Pacific

    The winners of the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards for Asia-Pacific were announced on the 10th June 2015 at an awards ceremony held in Hong Kong.
  • A done deal? Comment on Snapdeal v. Kaff

    E-tailers are more often than not unwilling to maintain resale price according to what the manufacturer expects. So much so that, along with the ease of ‘cash on delivery’, consumers in India have now come to expect lower prices for products they buy online.
  • An (unintentional) safe harbour for online counterfeiting?

    The recent decision in Shreya Singhal v Union of India by the Indian Supreme Court striking down the much maligned Section 66A of the Information Technology Act, 2000 (IT Act) is undoubtedly a watershed judgment in Indian Constitutional jurisprudence.
  • Has the Competition Commission dealt biggest legal blow yet to India’s start-up story?

    Growth, adoption and market share; these three words form the basis of the business strategies of millions of start-ups around the world including thousands in India. Profitability is almost a profanity in the start-up world; investors often advise start-ups to have a single-minded dedication to growth and to not worry about profits. Consequently, start-ups in India have been able to enter with a big bang offering goods and services at a price range that was unthinkable only a few years ago. Their strategies have included bumper discounts, large-scale marketing and possibly even pricing below cost. Some of these pricing strategies have been in play in the automotive aggregator space where players such as Ola and Uber have adopted very aggressive pricing and marketing strategies that have even driven out competitors like Taxi For Sure out of the market. Thus far, the sustainability of these pricing practices and the valuations of these companies has only been debated amongst industry experts ad nauseam even as more and more companies obtain millions of dollars of VC funding on the basis of the same model.

  • Saving the Cultural Heritage of India
