Patent laws / Patentability of Software in India
« on: August 21, 2013, 11:42:59 PM »
Section 3(k) of the Patents Act, 1970
excluded “computer programme” from the scope of patentability.

This exclusion met with conflicting interpretations at the patent office, with some examiners granting patents to software combined with hardware or software with a demonstrable technical application of some sort.

The 2004 Ordinance therefore qualified this exclusion by stating that software with a “technical application” to industry or when “combined with hardware” would be patentable. Owing to vigorous opposition from the free software movement, this provision was removed from the 2005 Act.

Thus the earlier stand under the Patents Act, 1970 that a computer programme is not patentable prevails.

Any of the following documents may be registered under this Act, namely:-
(a) instruments (other than instruments of donative and wills) which gist or have influence to bring into being, communicate, cast, march or put out, whether in at hand or in subsequent time, any right, inscription or affect, whether fixed or fortuitous, of a value less than one hundred rupees, to or in fixed attribute;
(b) instruments acknowledging the reception or paying of any deliberation on inventory of the origination, assertion, appointment, restriction or extinguishment of any such right, inscription or affect;
(c) leases of fixed attribute for any confine not exceeding one year, and leases exempted under division 17;
(cc) instruments transferring or assigning any command or method of a royal household or any command when such command or method or command purports or operates to bring into being, communicate, cast, march or put out, whether in at hand or in subsequent time, any right, inscription or affect, whether fixed or fortuitous, of a value less than one hundred rupees, to or in fixed attribute
(d) instruments (other than wills) which gist or have influence to bring into being, communicate, cast, march or put out any right, inscription or affect to or in portable attribute;
(e) wills; and
(f) all other documents not required by division 17 to be registered.

The Indian Evidence Act section 113A deals with the presumption as to the abetment of suicide by a married woman, which states that:

When the inquiry is whether the perpetration of self-murder by a woman had been abetted by her conjugal man or any referring of her conjugal man and it is shown that she had committed self-murder within a circuit of seven years from the era of her nuptials and that her conjugal man and such referring of her conjugal man had subjected her to brutality, the short may think, having regard to all other condition of the sheathe, that such self-murder had been abetted by her conjugal man or by any such referring of her conjugal man.
For the object of this part, brutality shall have same intention as in part 498A of the Indian Punitive Digest
The mete brutality shall mean the same as defined in 498A part of India Punitive Digest according to this:
Brutality mode-
a)  Any willful leadership which is of such a aggregate of phenomena as is likely to impel the woman to consign self-murder or to cause imprint injustice or hazard to life, member or hale condition (whether ideal or material) of the woman; or
b) Harassment of the woman where such harassment is with a see to coercing her or any somebody of the same nature to her to appropriate any illegal require for any characteristic or useful safety or is on score of deficiency by her or any such somebody of the same nature to her to appropriate such require.
The part 113A was inserted by Felonious Law (second reformation) Act 46 of 1983. This was introduced because there was increasing sum up of dower end of life, which was in circumstance a body of serious belong to. This ill was commented upon the Juncture Committee of the Abode to inspect the act of Dower Disallowance Act, 1961. The cases of brutality by the conjugal man or referring of conjugal man which would come in self-murder or manslaughter only constituted a tiny portion. In symmetry to stir this arduousness it was proposed to mend Indian Punitive Digest, Indian Trial Act and Felonious Conduct Digest that could efficiently quantity with the cases of dower end of life as well as brutality to conjugal woman by her conjugal man or his relatives.
The symmetry of law is that if a somebody wants to get some restorative done through the princely retinue he has to make good the being of certain factual ground. In the same way in symmetry to draw the anticipation of s113A of the Indian Trial Act the load of proving the circumstance lies on the somebody who affirms it. This fountain-head of load of trial is adjustable to all nuptial offences. For attracting the anticipation of 113A the following things has to be proved.
a. Self-murder must be committed by a conjugal woman
b. Self-murder must have been abetted by conjugal man or any referring of her conjugal man
c. Self-murder must be committed with in seven years of the nuptials
d. She must have been subjected to brutality (as defined in 498A of Indian Punitive Digest) by her conjugal man.
Guess under part l13A refers to one of the three ingredients of abetment as defined in part 107 IPC i.e. urgency, intrigue and designed aiding of the act. Where leadership of the accused indicated that he did not want her to die even though he might have treated her cruelly earlier, it cannot be presumed that he abetted the self-murder.
The guess of abetment of self-murder by a conjugal woman is rebuttable. If the accused is able to make good that the woman has committed self-murder by other rational faculty or she was not harassed in her nuptial abode by her in-laws in the name of demanding more dower. This guess can be rebutted. There is an pleasing circumstance to memorandum that the guess of 113A is adjustable only against the conjugal man not against woman. This was revealed with an pleasing sheathe that came before the Lofty Princely retinue in 2000.

Cyber laws / IT acts powers to intercept, monitor and block websites
« on: July 30, 2013, 04:56:06 AM »
Until the passage of this Section in the ITAA, phone tapping was governed by Clause 5(2) of the Indian Telegraph Act of 1885, which said that “On the occurrence of any public emergency, or in the interest of the public safety, the Government may, if satisfied that it is necessary or expedient so to do in the interests of the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States or public order or for preventing incitement to the commission of an offence, for reasons to be recorded in writing, by order, direct that any message or class of messages to or from any person or class of persons, or relating to any particular subject, brought for transmission by or transmitted or received by any telegraph, shall not be transmitted, or shall be intercepted or detained, or shall be disclosed to the Government making the order or an officer thereof mentioned in the order”. Other sections of the act mention that the government should formulate “precautions to be taken for preventing the improper interception or disclosure of messages”. There have been many attempts, rather many requests, to formulate rules to govern the operation of Clause 5(2). But ever since 1885,

no government has formulated any such precautions, maybe for obvious reasons to retain the spying powers for almost a century.

 A writ petition was filed in the Supreme Court in 1991 by the People’s Union for Civil Liberties, challenging the constitutional validity of this Clause 5(2). The petition argued that it infringed the constitutional right to freedom of speech and expression and to life and personal liberty. In December 1996, the Supreme Court delivered its judgment, pointing out that “unless a public emergency has occurred or the interest of public safety demands, the authorities have no jurisdiction to exercise the powers” given them under 5(2). They went on to define them thus: a public emergency was the “prevailing of a sudden condition or state of affairs affecting the people at large calling for immediate action”, and public safety “means the state or condition of freedom from danger or risk for the people at large”. Without those two, however “necessary or expedient”, it could not do so. Procedures for keeping such records and the layer of authorities etc were also stipulated.

Section 69: This is an interesting section in the sense that it empowers the Government or agencies as stipulated in the Section, to intercept, monitor or decrypt any information generated, transmitted, received or stored in any computer resource, subject to compliance of procedure as laid down here. This power can be exercised if the Central Government or the State Government, as the case may be, is satisfied that it is necessary or expedient in the interest of sovereignty or integrity of India, defence of India, security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States or public order or for preventing incitement to the commission of any cognizable offence relating to above or for investigation of any offence. In any such case too, the necessary procedure as may be prescribed, is to be followed and the reasons for taking such action are to be recorded in writing, by order, directing any agency of the appropriate Government. The subscriber or intermediary shall extend all facilities and technical assistance when called upon to do so.

Section 69A inserted in the ITAA, vests with the Central Government or any of its officers with the powers to issue directions for blocking for public access of any information through any computer resource, under the same circumstances as mentioned above. Section 69B discusses the power to authorise to monitor and collect traffic data or information through any computer resource

Cyber laws / Section 67B of IT act deals in Child Pornography
« on: July 30, 2013, 04:52:41 AM »
Child Pornography has been exclusively dealt with under Section 67B. Depicting children engaged in sexually explicit act, creating text or digital images or advertising or promoting such material depicting children in obscene or indecent manner etc or facilitating abusing children online or inducing children to online relationship with one or more children etc come under this Section. ‘Children’ means persons who have not completed 18 years of age, for the purpose of this Section. Punishment for the   first conviction is imprisonment for a maximum of five years and fine of ten lakh rupees and in the event of subsequent conviction with Imprisonment of seven years and fine of ten lakh rupees.

Bonafide heritage material being printed or distributed for the purpose of education or literature etc are specifically excluded from the coverage of this Section, to ensure that printing and distribution of ancient epics or heritage material or pure academic books on education and medicine are not unduly affected.

Screening videographs and photographs of illegal activities through Internet all come under this category, making pornographic video or MMS clippings or distributing such clippings through mobile or other forms of communication through the Internet fall under this category.

Section 67C fixes the responsibility to intermediaries that they shall preserve and retain such information as may be specified for such duration and in such manner as the Central Government may prescribe. Non-compliance is an offence with imprisonment upto three years or fine.

Section 67 deals with publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form. The earlier Section in ITA was later widened as per ITAA 2008 in which child pornography and retention of records by intermediaries were all included.

Publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form is dealt with here. Whoever publishes or transmits any material which is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest or if its effect is such as to tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely to read the matter contained in it, shall be punished with first conviction for a term upto three years and fine of five lakh rupees and in second conviction for a term of five years and fine of ten lakh rupees or both.

This Section is of historical importance since the landmark judgement in what is considered to be the first ever conviction under I.T. Act 2000 in India, was obtained in this Section in the famous case “State of Tamil Nadu vs Suhas Katti” on 5 November 2004. The strength of the Section and the reliability of electronic evidences were proved by the prosecution and conviction was brought about in this case, involving sending obscene message in the name of a married women amounting to cyber stalking, email  spoofing and the criminal activity stated in this Section.

Section 67-A deals with publishing or transmitting of material containing sexually explicit act in electronic form. Contents of Section 67 when combined with the material containing sexually explicit material attract penalty under this Section.
