The Supreme Court has posted September 15th as the date for final disposal of the Bajaj Auto v. TVS Motors patent infringement case on the twin-spark plugs technology. The bench on Monday (31/8) continued the earlier interim order of June 8 allowing TVS Motor to manufacture TVS Flame, the alleged infringed product, having the claimed twin-spark plugs technology for which Bajaj Auto claims it holds the patent rights.

Bajaj’s petition at the Supreme Court against the Madras High court order allowing TVS to use the twin spark technology resulted in the June 2009 interim order, where the SC asked TVS to make an undertaking stating that it would only manufacture the product but refrain from moving its “finished product (motorcycle) from its warehouse” and ordered both parties to restrained from using the said order for any other purposes including publicity.
