Bombay HC Deprecates Practice Of Eleventh-Hour Action In IPR Matters; Declines Injunction Against ‘Zee-Plex’

The Bombay High Court refused to grant ad-interim injunction against ‘Zee’ for using the word ‘Plex’ in its new online movie channel service observing that the practice of parties in IPR cases moving Court at the last minute cannot expect Courts to set aside all other cases and this happens regularly, whether it is movie releases or otherwise, Court observed. Justice GS Patel was hearing an interim application filed by Plex Inc seeking passing off action against ‘Zee’, a large multi media conglomerate for using the word ‘Plex’ in their new platform that was scheduled to be launched on October 2. Zee announced its proposed launch of the ‘cinema-to-home’ pay-per-view service on September 1.
