Editorial

Greetings from Surana and Surana, India!

This being our first edition for the year 2019, we hope our readers are having a great year so far! We ourselves are having a great year so far
– YellowBox has turned 5 this year!

A special mention to our colleagues who worked on the legal due diligence for the recent merger of three nationalised banks – Vijaya Bank, Bank of Baroda and Dena Bank (VBD). An arduous two months of work, spanning different fields of law such as Corporate Law & Compliance, Intellectual Property, Litigation, Real Estate, and Tax, among others, was instrumental in the successful completion of the merger. Team YellowBox congratulates Team VBD for their impeccable work!

The current edition of YellowBox, is aimed at covering emerging technologies and related legal implications. The cover story aims to decipher the effect of Artificial Intelligence on Trade Marks Law while the article aims to decode Blockchain Technology and its relevance to Intellectual Property (IP) Law.

Head to the case updates and news updates sections to get yourself abreast of all the IP developments across the world!

Also, don’t miss our spotlight section and the Fun Corner! The spotlight this time is on Mr. Lakshminarayanan Ramachandran, the Head of IP Rights Management, Samsung R&D Institute, India and the fun corner is going to awaken the crossword enthusiast in you!

We hope you enjoy the YellowBox experience!

Cheers!

Team Yellow Box
