The Hon’ble SC gave an authoritative Judgement on the issue on 01-07-2015.

Under Sec 62 of the Copyright Act and Sec 134 of Trade Marks Act, the party instituting the suit has the right to file a suit for infringement of a Copyright or a Regd Trade mark in any court within whose territorial jurisdiction the filing party (owner of the Copyright/Regd proprietor/Regd user) carries on its business and keeping in mind the fact that the Plaintiffs have their regional/branch offices in Delhi, the Hon’ble High Court in Delhi would have the territorial jurisdiction to hear, try and adjudicate the suits.
