    • the governments of China, United Kingdom, Brazil, South Africa, New Zealand and Canada have introduced anti ambush marketing laws to combat this growing threat .
    Remedies
  • 13.
    • Action may be taken for infringement through the Trade Mark Act, 1999 or The Copyright Act, 1957 when it is direct.
    • One of the difficulties in dealing with ambush marketing is it often does not violate any laws, unless the ambush marketer uses the trademarks of an event organizer or an official sponsor or otherwise engages in unfair or deceptive conduct. In such occasion the conductor of the event may initiate an action but not the competitior /official sponserer
    Remedies continued….
  • 14.
    • Instances of ambush marketing, unlike activities such as counterfeiting that involve the unauthorized use of a registered trademark on merchandise, are rarely actionable or amenable to the traditional intellectual property remedies of trademark infringement.
    • In the examples described above, the ambushed company cannot avail of any specific legal remedy. The advertising campaign can only be considered an unfair trade practice, the remedy for enforcement of which is not very clear
    Remedies continued ….
  • 15.
    • GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO ENACT SPECIFIC LEGISLATION
    • TO PREVENT AMBUSH MARKETING OR
    • PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY TO CO SPONSER THE EVENT FOR A LESSER PAYMENT SPONSERSHIP IN A LIMITED MANNER .
    • BUT MNC’S SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO MISUSE THE LESSER PAYMENT CO SPONSERSHIP.
    • TILL THEN,
    • PROTECTION MAY BE GIVEN THROUGH,
    • COMPETITION ACT, UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES PROVISION OF THE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT AND ALSO THROUGH SPECIFIC IPR LEGISLATIONS.
