Raymond Limited faces Criminal Charges under Copyright Violation of a Criminologist’s ad-film
Since 7 months the Textile Giant has been facing legal concerns from a Criminology Firm by Mr. Snehil Dhall Criminologist under Copyright Section 51, 52 (a), 63, 69

Mumbai: The 80+ years old Textile Giant must have faced an allegation for the first time in their history of litigations of its type. It has been reported that Mr. Snehil Dhall a UK qualified Criminologist had launched his first ad-film in 2014 for promoting his company called Crimeophobia which is a Criminology Firm.  The company Crimeophobia Limited was initially registered in England & Wales and it stands as proprietary in India while Dhall leaves no stone unturned and continues his battle with the giant. After observing the infringement in February 2015 during Cricket World Cup Series, he filed his complaint against the ad-film of Raymond Limited with YouTube, a Civil Suit at Dindoshi City Civil Court and a Criminal Complaint with the Aarey Police Station, Mumbai.

The ad was deleted twice by YouTube and the same was voluntarily removed by Raymond Limited from TV broadcast due to which Dhall had withdrawn his Civil Suit as well. As per the jurisdiction, the Civil Suit was only for restricting Raymond Limited from the use of ad-film on TV and not for any Compensation. However, the criminal complaint with Aarey Police Station had its intensive investigative proceedings which confirmed that Raymond Limited didn’t have any evidence to prove their legitimate position against the claims of Dhall. The legal department of Raymond Limited visited in large numbers to the Police Station but refused to give their statement. The Police had also sent notices to various TV Channels and even they refused to give their statement since it was evident that Raymond Limited didn’t submit any documents for their ad-film with the Copyright Department of India.

Based on the investigation, the criminal complaint of copyright infringement was accepted by the Senior Police Inspector and the Assistant Commissioner of Police and was thereafter A.C.P had forwarded to Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 12) for his final permission to lodge the F.I.R against Raymond Limited. The application was rejected by the D.C.P claiming it to be a Civil Case even after Dhall had submitted all the documents of his copyright and Raymond Limited submitting none of their documents. On this Dhall said “YouTube had deleted the Ad-Film twice within 24 hours of my complaint but Indian Criminal Justice System has no importance to Copyright Violations”. He added “Every individual or companies should file their copyright documentations with the Government of India and claim their hardwork against such Giant who are habitual offenders and misuse the Indian Justice Mechanism”. The D.C.P doesn’t clarify his legal stand over rejecting the complaint in writing due to unknown reasons.


At the time of asking for clarification for withdrawing the Civil Case, Dhall mentioned that it was of no use to waste the time of the Court when the purpose was solved of getting the ad-film removed from the TV, however, Raymond Limited is still eligible for Criminal Case due to which he plans to continue his battle. After the case was shut by the Police Station over 3 months ago, Dhall had filed R.T.I to get all the documents linked to the case but every time the Police gave him one document at a time. It took him 3 months of heated arguments to get all the documents after he lodged another complaint with the Additional Commissioner of North Mumbai Police for getting all the documents. The final document which he received was the internal report of Aarey Police Station to the ACP and DCP which stated very clearly that Dhall had submitted all the relevant documents for the F.I.R under Copyright Act and Raymond Limited didn’t submit any documents and also refused to give their statement. Dhall now plans to file a complaint with the Mumbai Police Commissioner against Raymond Limited and also on all the TV Channels that broadcasted the ad-film at their respective jurisdictions.

VHP Memo to LG to stop Beef in Delhi
Letter also sent to HM, MCD, Hotels & Restaurants
          New Delhi, Nov. 03, 2015. Vishwa Hindu Parishad Delhi today sent a letter to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi complaining sale of beef in many Hotels, restaurants and food joints of Delhi. The letter jointly signed by the Kshetriya Gau Raksha Pramukh shri Rashtra Prakash and the Delhi state joint Secretary of VHP shri Ram Pal Singh Yadav appealed the head of the national capital region to stop sale of Beef in Delhi forthwith.
Releasing the letter to the media, the spokesperson of Vishwa Hindu Parishad shri Vinod Bansal said that the information of Beef sale in the national capital was pouring in since last many days. The Kerala House incidence & the latest sting telecasted on some national media channels well exposed such incidents openly challenging law of the land & religious sentiments of Hindus.
Highlighting the provisions of the Delhi Agricultural Cattle Preservation Act, 1994, the letter said that “despite complete prohibition on sale, purchase, possession and consumption of beef in Delhi, various hotels, restaurants and food joints are selling beef”. “The said Act clearly prohibits the purchase, sale, import, export, possession & serving of the flesh of cows, calves, bulls and bullocks of all ages as well as their disposal for slaughter in any manner” the VHP added.
Despite the said law being in full force, its enforcement by the concerned authorities seems to be in question. It is shocking to witness that many Hotels/restaurants and food joints in Delhi, are still daring to carry ‘beef’ as it is or otherwise in their food menu. A little reference to any dictionary available clearly exposes the dubious arguments of those who are trying to mislead the masses that buffalo meat is also covered under the definition of ‘beef’, the letter said.
VHP appealed LG to issue immediate necessary directions to the concerned licensing and other law enforcing authorities to ensure implementation of law of the land, nab the culprits and stop hurting religious sentiments of Hindus.
Copy of the letter has also been sent to the Union Home Ministry, Commissioner of Police, Mayors & Commissioners of Municipal Corporations of Delhi and Hotel, restaurants & food joints of Delhi for implementation of the law. In our letter, We have categorically stated that “in case the sale or serving of beef do not stopped forthwith, we will have to launch an agitation to protect the law”, Bansal added.

Unveil the new identity of McDowell’s No. 1 Soda and kick off the ‘Yaari’ digital movement
New Delhi, Nov 2, 2015: The real bond of friendship is the one that stands the test of times. After all these years of close friendship, MS Dhoni and Chris Gayle took their personal camaraderie and passion for the sport to the next level and celebrated their ‘No1Yaari’ by unveiling the new identity for United Spirits’ iconic brand McDowell’s No. 1 Soda and shared  inspiring stories of their brotherhood.
The new identity of McDowell’s No.1 Soda is showcased through a simple yet powerful and unique logo that represents how close friends ‘hug’ each other.
Gautam Bhimani, the popular cricket commentator, hosted a candid conversation with the duo whereby he quizzed them on their ‘No1Yaari’ moments, unrevealed locker room stories, boy banter and more.
Excited to talk about his personal Yaari moments, the Indian skipper, MS Dhonisaid, “Sports truly brings us together. Be it invoking the feeling of brotherhood within the team or bonding with people with a shared passion for the sport. Gayle and I share a fantastic equation that is sealed by the bond of real friendship and mutual respect.  Reliving great memories and special moments today has been real fun! McDowell’s No. 1 Soda brings back warm memories of great evenings spent with my close friends and that’s what the brand has done once again for me today.”

The ever energetic and spontaneous sportsman, Chris Gayle said, “The shared passion for cricket is what connects Dhoni and myself as good friends and companions. In fact it is on the cricket field that I have made some of the most memorable friendships and for me the best way to show the joy and affection is through a hug. I am very happy that McDowell’s No.1 Soda has been able to capture a hug as the essence of true friendship in their new logo.”
Amrit Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer and President – United Spiritscommented on the occasion, “McDowell’s No. 1 Soda has always celebrated the spirit of brotherhood and true friendships. In our journey forward, we aim at strengthening this core brand proposition as we revamp our brand to drive this message strongly to our consumers. The new logo is a symbol of how close friends hug each other both metaphorically and literally and we are happy to have MS Dhoni and Chris Gayle unveil this since they are   two friends that embody the bond of brotherhood.”
Gayle encouraged friends to jump on the ‘No1Yaari’ bandwagon and participate in McDowell’s No.1 Soda’s “SHARE A HUG” movement, where he demonstrated to the audience how simple it is to Share A Hug – all that a participant needs to do is click on the link (www.liveinstyle.com/share-a-hug), upload their best yaari picture which is then converted to the McDowell’s No. 1 Soda embrace and can be shared with their friends on social media.

Film screening APPUNTI PER UN FILM SULL’INDIA, 1968,

Dear Friends,

DELHI PHOTO FESTIVAL 2015 - PIER PAOLO PASOLINI: APPUNTI PER UN FILM SULL'INDIA
Appunti per un film sull’India is a 1968 short documentary film by Pier Paolo Pasolini where he visits India to do a recces for his proposed film with India as its background about a king who gives up his body to feed a starving tiger. The film was shot around post-independent India when it was facing grave challenges of poverty, population and caste system. Pasolini narrates the challenges of India and its charms amidst all the problems the country faces. The 33 minute long documentary is composed of short interviews from random people about their opinions on matters such as family planning. The documentary also shows short interviews of journalists and one politician about the challenges India faces in modernizing itself without becoming westernized or losing the Indian identity in the process. Il film venne realizzato da Pasolini per conto della rubrica Tv7 del telegiornale del primo canale della Rai. Fu girato a Bombay, a Nuova Delhi e negli stati di Uttar Pradesh e Rajasthan nel dicembre 1967 e presentato alla Mostra del Cinema di Venezia l’anno seguente insieme al film Teorema. In queste riprese Pasolini si concentra su vari aspetti dell’India, dal mito alla realtà. All’inizio del film ci sono immagini istituzionali interrotte da immagini perturbanti di corpi malformati, non descritte dalla voce narrante.

UN-ESCAP: Asia-Pacific trade slowing as economies adjust to lower global growth






UN-ESCAP’s flagship report analyses the rise of global value chains as a major vehicle of trade in the region
Asia and the Pacific remains the most dynamic region of the global economy but growth in regional trade and investment flows is slowing, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP) said in its latest regional trade and investment outlook report released on 2 November. The report emphasizes that countries need to adjust to both cyclical and structural changes, especially in light of the global slowdown and an expected reduction in China’s growth rate.
Total exports and imports from the region grew by only 1.6 per cent in 2014, however, when excluding China from the regional total, exports from the Asia-Pacific region registered a decline of 0.4 per cent according to the Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report 2015 ESCAP’s annual flagship publication. The continued sluggish pace of trade and investment growth in the region is impacting the prospects of a merchandise trade recovery in the near-term. Despite this, the Asia-Pacific region stands out for its significant and sustained achievements in leveraging trade and investment flows for development.
Launching the Report in Bangkok, United Nations Under-Secretary-General and ESCAP Executive Secretary Dr. Shamshad Akhtar emphasized the importance of reviving trade and investment flows at a time when Member States have recently endorsed the centrality of trade and investment, as critical means of implementation for the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Dr.
Akhtar called on regional policymakers to enhance competitiveness in order to promote inward investment and technology.
“The data and analysis in the 2015 Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report will help to mainstream trade considerations, as we work towards achieving the new Sustainable Development Goals,” said Dr. Akhtar.
“Production fragmentation across national borders as part of Global Value Chains (GVCs) has opened new opportunities for developing countries to integrate in global trade. In order to prosper in this globalized environment, countries will need to boost competitiveness and productivity to attract inward investment and technology, and find areas where they can successfully integrate in these value chains.”
Tourism helps services trade outperform trade in goods
Despite the lowering of trade growth prospects, it is likely that the Asia-Pacific region will hold its position as the largest trading region in the world. In 2014, the region accounted for almost 40 per cent of global exports and imports. Intraregional imports remained at slightly more than 50 per cent of the total in 2014, with intraregional exports at 54 per cent.
The outlook for regional services trade was brighter than for merchandise trade. Asia-Pacific exports of services increased at 5.1 per cent in 2014, compared with 4 per cent in the previous year. Exports of travel and other commercial services were especially strong, supported by growing demand for travel by China.
The report shows that trade facilitation measures, including implementation of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), can help reduce trade costs.
Indeed, many countries in Asia-Pacific are getting on with implementing trade facilitation measures ahead of TFA ratification. These changes will help reduce regional trade costs but much more still needs to be done, especially in landlocked countries. The report suggests that a regional agreement on paperless trade would mark a substantial breakthrough in this regard.
The Report also reinforces the importance of countries maintaining open trade regimes, and avoiding implementation of trade-restrictive measures.
It highlights the ongoing problems created by increases in use of trade-restrictive measures across the region, particularly non-tariff measures. These measures have detrimental consequences for the region’s least developed countries, presenting particular obstacles to small and medium sized exporters.
Entering Global Value Chains key for low-income countries
This year’s Report contains analysis on the challenges and opportunities posed by the rise of GVCs as a major vehicle of trade. Recent years have seen increased fragmentation of production across national boundaries with all its attendant benefit, supported by improving logistics, communication technologies and lower barriers to trade.
The Report concluded that the Asia-Pacific region has been central to the development of GVCs and is now at the heart of many global and regional supply chains. Despite this, most countries in the region have not fully benefitted from the expanded flows of trade and investments associated with the rise of GVCs and remain excluded from their potential benefits, particularly low-income countries, as 90 per cent of GVC-related trade is found to occur in just ten regional economies.
A full copy of the 2015 Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report is available at:
Background: The Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report (APTIR) is a recurrent publication prepared by the Trade and Investment Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific. It provides information on and independent analyses of trends and developments
in: (a) intra- and inter-regional trade in goods and services; (b) foreign direct investment; (c) trade facilitation measures; (d) trade policy measures; and (e) preferential trade policies and agreements. The report provides insights into the impacts of these recent and emerging developments on countries’ abilities to meet the challenges of achieving inclusive and sustainable development.
