Patents denote one of the most important types of intellectual property. The patents are granted legal protection of in exchange for disclosure of information related to an invention. The cases of patent infringements are arising and getting more attention than ever before. This move is obviously has its origin in the commercial interests and the revenue one can earn from commercialization of patents. Many academicians are of the view that Patents may hamper academic research. Patent infringement for drugs and pharmaceuticals has assumed greater significance and has been reviewed by many concerned parties (innovators / experts, patent offices and courts). Several cases of infringement related to drugs, medical procedures, medical devices and biotechnological works have been reported. Patent infringement remains a complicated issue. Its determination requires understanding of industrial and legal complexities. Hence, the patent offices and appellate bodies need to play their important role while deciding the matters related to patents and their utilization. After all, public benefit can also not be neglected.
