We almost didn’t write this – I’m still divided on whether to write a piece on a judgment that in my opinion is based on such a singular weave of facts and circumstances that it cannot possibly be relevant to the average company or shareholder; if you’ve noticed, all our musings on this platform always coalesce into pointers on what to do (and more importantly, what not to do) on the basis of our otherwise academic and theoretical endeavours. Light reading of the three hundred page judgment apart (with all the excitement that comes along with indulging such prose […/s]), I wondered whether a Bridge Legal post on the conclusion of the Tata-Mistry saga would make any sense, or even have a point.

Copyrights seem to be in the judicial limelight of late – we highly recommend that you read this earlier piece of ours if you haven’t already (why?), because one of India’s best judges (in our humble opinion) just delivered an important judgment while also referring to the same case and also because we here at Bridge Legal highlighted some important fundamentals pertaining to Copyrights which serves as a primer before getting into today’s opinion.
