week of December China intruded nearly a kilometre into Indian territory at Arunachal Pradesh and started road-construction activities before they were challenged by Indian security forces and beat a

salami-slicing tactics China’s madness is methodical It never does ‘inadvertent’ things Just as Doka La was initiated to achieve multiple targets — test the boundaries of India’s tolerance threshold

activities will have larger implications A larger question stares at us: What does China hope to achieve by salami-slicing into sovereign territories At the height of Doka La standoff COAS Rawat sounded apprehensive about the possibility of a two-front war arising out of China’s ‘salami-slicing’ tactics ‘Salami-slicing’ (coined by Hungarian Communist leader Mátyás Rákosi in the late 1940s)

doping "Our stand is no excuse towards someone who has cheated As of today any athlete who has offended will be hit by a life ban" he said The move means Ethiopian athletes who fail tests and are subject to a four-year ban from 28 December onwards will no longer be able to represent the country in any competition The punishment is much stricter than the one currently imposed by the International Olympic Committee whose rules stipulate that athletes caught doping can face four-year bans but after serving it they are eligible to compete in any international event including the Olympics Gebrselassie said his aim was to convince the sport’s world governing body that Ethiopia was serious in tackling doping and for it to be removed from the list of countries identified by IAAF

coerce India to amend its national IP regime to suit the former’s business interests (Reuters) Related News Even as the Khobragade scandal fades from public memory another controversy threatens to derail US-India bilateral relations This time around the battle is over intellectual property (IP) rights A US governmental agency the International Trade Commission (ITC) recently initiated an inquiry into allegations that India’s IP regime was flawed and at odds with US business interests In the Khobragade case there had been noise about how India had to learn to respect the “national” laws of the US The present controversy highlights the US’s efforts to coerce India to amend its national IP regime to suit the former’s business interests Clearly multinational pharmaceutical companies are upset with India’s rigorous patent threshold In other countries patent regimes are routinely gamed to protect and even promote the evergreening of drugs (that is when an old drug that is off patent is modified ever so slightly so that an additional patent monopoply can be procured) India in its 2005 amendments to the patents act sent a clear message that it would not suffer evergreening The “notorious” Section 3(d) has been used to axe many an evergreening attempt the most significant being Novartis’s anti-cancer drug Glivec In similar vein India went on to grant a compulsory licence to Bayer’s excessively priced anti-cancer drug (selling at Rs 28 lakh a month) paving the way for a cheaper generic to enter the market at Rs 8800 per month All of this was done in conformity with Indian patent law and WTO obligations More importantly the licence was issued after a rigorous judicial process Yet big pharma continues to remain peeved and has been offering testimony after testimony in the US on how Indian IP law is not “respectful” of global pharma interests It seems oblivious to the fact that US courts denied injunctions to patentees and effectively granted de facto compulsory licences when they deemed it necessary in “public interest” The Bayer and the Novartis cases will no doubt take centrestage at this inquiry triggered by senators who complained among other things that India “has applied its patent law in a discriminatory manner particularly against innovative US pharmaceutical companies so as to advantage its domestic industries” In what appears to be a bid to show India in poor light at these hearings the US Chamber of Commerce’s Global IP Centre (GIPC) issued a timely report ranking the IP regimes of a curious assortment of 25 countries Unsurprisingly the US topped the list and India came in last The Chamber of Commerce has now gone on to demand that the US trade representative classify India as a “priority foreign country” a status reserved for the worst IP offenders and one that could potentially lead to trade sanctions Given that the GIPC report was authored by prominent members of a thinktank (Pugatch Consilium) who consult significantly with big pharma it is reasonable to suspect its “independence” This is more than evident from a methodology that seems designed to make India look bad First the report lumps together a diverse set of countries without regard to their socio-economic status or their developmental imperatives If history is any indication almost every country had minimalist IP protection at the start of its technological trajectory and moved to a maximalist IP position when its indigenous units had built sufficient capacity Indeed as the American historian Doron Ben Atar reminds us the US was once a “pirate” economy with American enterprises being encouraged to “borrow” freely from European technology Second there is no real mention of why the GIPC report picked the indicators they did or how it weighted them For instance the baseline value of the compulsory licencing index and the consequent ranking is extremely critical of any issuance of a licence even when it is fully compliant with WTO-TRIPS norms Third much of the ranking rests on “perception” and conveniently enough the perception of US multinationals that have faced difficulty extracting excessive patent rents from India Relying on perception particularly when patent numbers and “data” abound is not just shoddy but dishonest Last there is a delicious paradox underlying the flawed GIPC ranking and methodology The report appears premised on the perception that an IP regime that offers more protection to inventions even trivial ones is a “strong” one Countries such as India which stands for genuine invention and will not suffer low quality evergreened varieties are surprisingly labelled as “weak” In fact stretched to its logical limit the GIPC index would suggest a score of “infinity”
