  • The judge said,

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday granted an injunction to direct-to-home (DTH) operator Dish TV against Prasar Bharti, preventing the public broadcaster from using the word 'Dish' for its free-to-air DTH platform 'DD Free Dish'. The defendant is granted three months to inform its consumers/subscribers of the new name and to avoid the suffering of the consumers/subscribers. The interim order was passed by a Single Judge Bench. Expressing its disappointment at finding a public sector undertaking using another’s trademark and contesting the litigation at the cost of the exchequer, the Court observed:

“.. I am dismayed that the defendant, a public sector enterprise, indulged in using another’s trademark and in spite of the plaintiff objecting thereto, refused to act reasonably. The same is not expected of a public sector enterprise which according to the proclaimed litigation policy of the Government is not to be indulged in. It is at least now expected that the officials responsible for the conduct of the business of the defendant will bestow attention thereto and take a call, whether it is worthwhile to contest this litigation, obviously at the cost of the exchequer.”
