It held that a High Court without original civil jurisdiction and a commercial division is competent to consider such a case.As per Section 22 of the Designs Act, a defendant in a suit for infringement of design is entitled to raise a defence that the registration of design is liable to be cancelled. Section 22(4) states that if such a defence is raised, the Court in which the suit is pending shall transfer it to the High Court.In the instant case, S D Containers instituted a case in the District Court, Indore, for infringement of design of its container lids against the defendant. The defendant raised a counter-claim seeking cancellation of the design. In this backdrop, the District Court chose to exercise the power under Section 22(4). However, the District Court ordered the transfer of the suit to the Calcutta High Court on the reasoning that the Madhya Pradesh High Court has no commercial division(since it has no original civil jurisdiction). The Court noted that after the enactment of Commercial Courts Act, 2015, cases under the Designs Act over the specified pecuniary limit had to be dealt with by Commercial Courts. The design was registered by the Controller General of Patents & Trademarks, Kolkata.Aggrieved by the transfer of the case to Calcutta High Court, the plaintiff approached the Madhya Pradesh High Court(Indore Bench).The High Court held that since the Commercial Courts Act 2015 has an overriding effect, the suit has to be considered by a Commercial Court and not the High Court as envisaged by the Designs Act.The Court ordered the District Court at Indore(which has been notified as a Commercial Court) to decide the suit.A single bench of Justice Vivek Rusia of the HC observed :”The Commercial Courts Act is a special enactment having an overriding effect over other enactments by virtue of section 21. The Parliament was conscious enough to provide a provision of transfer of commercial dispute to the High Court only having the ordinary original civil jurisdiction but all other High Courts do not enjoy the original jurisdiction and where the provision has been made for constitution of Commercial Courts and all the suits and applications relating to the commercial disputes are liable to be transferred to the Commercial Courts as per the territorial jurisdiction. Despite the word ‘High Court’ used in section22 (4) but after enactment of the Commercial Courts Act2000, such a suit is liable to be transferred to the Commercial Court and not to the High Court in a State where the High Court has no ordinary original civil jurisdiction”.The Supreme Court disapproved this reasoning of the High Court.While deciding the appeal filed by the plaintiff, the SC noted that Section 7 of the Commercial Courts Act, which talks about creation of Commercial Divisions in High Courts, is applicable only to High Courts having original civil jurisdiction.The apex court further noted that there is no provision in the 2015 Act either prohibiting or permitting the transfer of the proceedings under the 2000 Act to the High Courts which do not have ordinary original civil jurisdiction.The overriding effect of the 2015 Act as per its Section 21 will come into play only in the event of any inconsistency with any other law.”Since the 2015 Act has no provision either prohibiting or permitting the transfer of proceedings under the 2000 Act, Section 21 of the 2015 Act cannot be said to be inconsistent with the provisions of the 2000 Act”, observed a bench .The Supreme Court observed that the transfer to High Court under Section 22(4) “is a ministerial act if there is a prayer for cancellation of the registration”.Another reasoning given by the High Court was that since the appellate power over the cancellation of design registration by the Controller under Section 19 of the Designs Act was conferred on the High Court, it would be anomalous to transfer the suit to the High Court itself.This reasoning was also found to be flawed by the judgment authored Justice Hemant Gupta.The SC observed that the power of controller to cancel registration under Section 19 and the right of a defendant to seek revocation of the same in a suit under Section 22 are “independent provisions giving rise to different and distinct causes of action”.The top court approved the decision of the District Court to transfer the case to the High Court but held that it erred while ordering its transfer to the Calcutta High Court.”Since no part of cause of action has arisen within the jurisdiction of Kolkata, the suit is liable to be transferred to Madhya Pradesh High Court, Indore Bench. In fact, the Plaintiff has filed suit at Indore, Madhya Pradesh only”, the SC observed.The Supreme Court directed that the suit should be decided by Madhya Pradesh High Court, Indore Bench.Case DetailsTitle :S D Containers, Indore v M/s Mold Tek Packaging Ltd(Civil Appeal No. 3695/2020)Bench : Justices L Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ajay Rastogi.Appearances : Advocate Jai Sai Deepak for the appellant; Assudani for the respondent.Click here to read/download the Supreme Court judgmentClick here to read/download the High Court judgment Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Photo: Qatar Airways QATAR Airways has announced plans to buy up to 100 Boeing aircraft worth $US18.6 billion at list prices, including 30 787-9 Dreamliners and 10 777-300ERs.The expanding Gulf carrier’s announcement of the $US11.7 billion order for the 787s and 777s increases its firm order backlog for Boeing widebody planes from 66 to 105, including 60 777Xs.It also signed a letter of intent at a ceremony in Washington, DC attended by government and airline officials, for up 60 737 MAX 8s with a list price of $US6.9 billion. Although airlines receive substantial discounts to list prices, the announcement comes at a time sales of widebody jets have slowed. It is also the biggest 787 order since 2013.Qatar currently has a fleet of 84 Boeing 777s and 787s delivered since it renewed its relationship with the US manufacturer in 2006. The airline was the first in the Middle east to operate the 787 and is the launch customer for the 777X. If the letter of intent progresses to a firm order, the 737MAX will be the first Boeing single aisle plane to join Qatar for 15 years.”Qatar Airways, already one of the fastest growing airlines in the history of aviation, today announces a significant and historic aircraft order that will power our future growth for the years and the decades ahead,” said Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said in a statement. “Boeing has proven to be a valuable partner, and today’s announcement is testament to our appreciation of the quality of their product and their dedication to providing world class customer service.”Qatar’s total fleet of 190 aircraft includes Airbus A380, A350, A330, A340 and A320 family aircraft. It also has 50 Airbus A320 neos, the competitor to the 737 MAX, on order.But Boeing Commercial Airplanes president Ray Conner said the deal expressed confidence in Boeing’s new technology aircraft.”Our partnership with Qatar Airways has grown and strengthened tremendously over the years and I look forward to the time when its fleet will feature an increasing number of both our single and twin-aisle airplanes,” he said.Al Baker denied the commercial aircraft sale was linked to US government approval to allow Boeing to sell 36 F-15E jet fighters worth an estimated $US 4 billion to the Qatar government, The Seattle Times reported.

Increase in people’s movement “It is generally agreed that new rail technology generates social benefits which stem from savings, increase in reliability, comfort and safety, as well as from the reduction of congestion and accidents … It is the most environmentally friendly mode of transport,” Mahlalela said. The department’s director-general, George Mahlalela, said the investment will include beefing up operations in the passenger rail sector, with potential high-speed rail projects identified in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Musina in Limpopo province. Mahlalela said most of the country’s commuter rail system was nearing the end of its life-span. “We believe that an ambitious programme of introducing new rail stock and technology in our system is an absolute necessity,” he said. Sustainable investment environment The plan comes a week Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele and his Chinese counterpart, Liu Zhijun, signed a memorandum of understanding on co-operation in the rail sector. 2 September 2010 The department says the investment programme, which is expected to run for the next 20 years, will create “certainty” and allow manufacturers to retool their businesses, leading to sustainable local industrial activities. The Department of Transport says it is working on a multi-billion rand rail investment programme to upgrade and modernise South Africa’s aging rail network. “We are seeing a massive increase in long distance travel in South Africa … This puts a major strain on our roads and air traffic, and these challenges can only be addressed through rapid rail system,” he said. Source: BuaNews Mahlalela said the massive increase in people’s movement and road traffic was posing serious challenges for South Africa’s economy. “Our view is that the rail sector should be one of the major investment areas for the transport sector and the economy of South Africa.” Over R40-billion has been invested in the past five years in passenger rail infrastructure across the country. Mahlalela said this included the R25-billion invested on the Gautrain and almost R13-billion on the rehabilitation of passenger coaches and signalling systems.
Tag: 上海外卖私人工作室 How Mandela nearly ruined my photo
17 December 2013 Former South African president Nelson Mandela may have saved a nation, but he nearly ruined my most treasured photograph, writes Paddy Upton, performance director of the national cricket team and head coach of the Rajasthan Royals When an athlete goes on to the field, in front of a camera or to a public function, they generally put their best foot forward. So do we when we meet our new boss, start a new relationship or meet our significant other’s parents for the first time. It’s easy to put a best foot forward and look good. This does not impress me much. What interests me is who we are when we’re not playing the part that is written on our CV. Who are we being in our private moments when away from scrutinising eyes – when our true character gets to shine through? There are few more telling moments than how we treat the “little” people when no one is watching; people like the restaurant or hotel breakfast waiter, the team bus driver, the not-so-good-looking supermarket teller or the 51st autograph hunter of the day. What would the tea lady, receptionist and janitor at your office say about you?A dream come true During an Indian Premier League tournament I watched Rajasthan Royals’ players Shane Watson and Rahul Dravid thank the bus driver for each journey between the hotel and practice ground. Coach Eric Simons takes it to another level, always asking the bus driver’s name and then daily greeting and thanking him by name. Other players, after a six-week cricket tour, wouldn’t even know what the driver looked like. I watched Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar helping a nervous mother take a photo of himself and her son, knowingly making himself late for the bus but also making the child’s day and possibly a dream come true. This happened in New Zealand and when no one was watching, other than me waiting for him in the lift. This was Sachin when not acting out his CV, but being himself. There are other cricketers I have had the privilege to work with who have shown this soundness of character in private moments – they know who they are and I don’t need to mention them here.Indescribable presence And then the day came. I had the opportunity to meet Nelson Mandela in one of these private moments, out of the public eye … and he nearly ruined a treasured photograph of mine! This story begins a little earlier, in 1996 when I first got to meet Madiba as a member of the South African Cricket team management. I had planned to ask him two questions … and then, as he moved into my space, I became enveloped by an indescribable presence and a powerful stillness overcame me. Video footage showed that we spoke for a brief few moments – but to this day I still have no recollection of the experience. I have no idea what he said to me or what I said to him. I don’t think I asked my planned questions. The team then posed for a photo with Madiba, with him still in the outfit he had been wearing when he attended the Cape Carnival earlier in the day. This was the treasured photo, the one that Madiba himself was to nearly ruin.Autograph A year later we got to meet him again at Newlands Cricket Ground [in Cape Town] before playing an international match. This time I had another question, one that I would not forget to ask. I wanted him to please sign the treasured photo from our last meeting. Due to a tight schedule he told his security officer, Rory Steyn, to have me meet him at his presidential car on his way out of the stadium. I waited; equipped with excitement, my photo and a pen. Due to the crowds, he was ushered hastily past me and into his car. They were about to pull off when he saw me and beckoned the driver to stop. He opened the car door and invited me to sit next to him. As he began to sign, the inkless nib only managed to scratch the photograph. It was one of those pens that you need to put pressure on the nib so that it retracts into the pen and releases ink from the cartridge. I mentioned he should put pressure on the nib, which when he did, resulted in the whole cartridge of gold ink splattering all over the photo. Damn! I should have tested the pen. Damn, my photo was ruined! Without a moment’s thought, the president of our country immediately wiped the photo clean with his trademark Madiba shirt sleeve. He wiped before any ink could dry, cleaning the photo and ruining his shirt with a permanent gold stain. I thought, “Oh no, his shirt is ruined.” He said, “Thank goodness, your photo is not ruined!” He asked for another pen, signed it, and apologised for nearly ruining my photo. It was just us in his car, the president of a country and a lowly fitness trainer – in private and no cameras. In those few moments I witnessed why Nelson Mandela will be remembered in a thousand year’s time as one of the greatest men to have walked the planet. To honour you, Tata Madiba, would be to live the lesson you taught me that day. I accept that I’ll never be as great as you, but I’m embarrassed to acknowledge a deep fear that I’ll not be as humble as you. I promise to try.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) and the Ohio Soybean Association (OSA) endorsed Ohio Senate Bill 229 and Ohio House Bill 634, bipartisan legislation which would invest significant new resources to protect water quality throughout the state.OCWGA and OSA representatives will testify today in favor of HB 634, sponsored by Rep. Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton) and Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson), before the House Finance Committee and in favor of SB 229, sponsored by Sen. Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and Sen. Sean O’Brien (D-Bazetta), at the Senate Finance Committee.“Ohio grain farmers have demonstrated their commitment to the protection of both soils and water quality by investing their time and money to work with partners and find solutions,” said OCWGA board member Mark Drewes. “We applaud this bipartisan coalition of legislators for making the health of Lake Erie and other bodies of water a priority.”“This will help even more farmers implement best management practices,” said OSA President Allen Armstrong. “Farmers have invested millions of dollars in research and education to address water quality, and we would welcome new resources from the State of Ohio.”If approved, the two bills would:Invest as much as $20 million in farm equipment and other initiatives to reduce phosphorus runoff in the Western Lake Erie Basin;Invest $10 million to prevent open lake dumping of dredged materials in Lake Erie;Invest $2.65 million in the Ohio State Sea Grant’s Stone Laboratory near Put-in-Bay to pay for research lab space and monitoring devices;Invest $3.5 million to support the conservation efforts of the soil and water conservation districts in the Western Lake Erie Basin.
