Where Court action is not taken within the prescribed 3 or 10-day period, counterfeit goods which have been seized by an inspector must be released. Where infringement proceedings have been instituted by an applicant, and the applicants claim has been dismissed by the Court, the Court, on the application of the erstwhile respondent or any other interested person claiming to be entitled to the goods, may order that such goods be released, respectively, to the erstwhile respondent or such interested person who has proved his or her entitlement thereto. The normal process of the Courts may be utilized to review or modify an order. Section 4 of the Counterfeit Goods Act, 1997 refers in this regard.
