Welcome to the October 2018 issue of Ensouth.
Regardless of whether he is India’s most controversial Chief Justice or not, Mr. Deepak Mishra is most certainly its most prolific one, at least in the last week of September, when he delivered 16 judgments in five days! With a record like that, the smallest homage we can pay him is to deliver a ‘Mishra Ensouth Special’ next time, devoting an entire issue to his judgments. Hopefully!
This time though, we are more diverse but just as topical. First, in , we reject the whole conception behind the latest amendments to the Negotiable Instruments Act and demonstrate their absurdity.
Next, in we show how the relentless pressure from a steadily deteriorating polity is transforming the Supreme Court and forcing it to perform a role that wasn’t its burden to do.
Finally, , we look at how our IPR laws have become anachronistic in a world transformed by digital technology and the internet.
