Indian patent enforcement and the chemical arts

The Royal Society of Chemistry's Law Subject Group is holding a symposium, "Indian Patent Enforcement in the Chemical Arts", on Monday 26 September 2011 in the Common Room, The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL, UK. The symposium will run from 9.30 am to 5.00 pm, with a reception from 5-6 pm. The symposium's synopsis runs thus:
"When the Indian government enacted the Patents (Amendment) Act 2005, it was guided by policy considerations that differed radically from its former IP policies. If the Patents (Amendment) Act 2005 is viewed as a grand IP experiment by the Indian government, the experience of India subsequent to 2005 may be viewed as the experimental result. 
The purpose of the symposium is to examine that experimental result from a case law point of view and its conformance with the intended policy. Particular emphasis will be placed on its impact on IP enforcement issues in the chemical arts".
