With regard to the enforcement obligations of Articles 41-61 of the TRIPS Agreement, the draft legislation in Grenada states the following: The performance of any of the acts in Grenada by a person other than the owner of the title of protection, and without the agreement of the latter, constitutes an infringement. On the request of the owner of the title of protection, or of a licensee if the licensee has requested the owner to institute court proceedings for specific relief and the owner has refused or failed to do so, the court may grant an injunction to prevent infringement, an imminent infringement, or an unlawful act, and may award damages and grant any other remedy provided for in the general law. Any decision taken by the Registrar under this Act, in particular the grant of a patent or the registration of an industrial design or of a mark or collective mark, or the refusal of an application for such a grant or registration, may be the subject of an appeal by any interested party before the […..] Court and such appeal must be filed within [2] months of the date of the decision. With regard the production of confidential information, section 50(5) states: "In requiring the production of evidence, the court before which the proceedings referred to in subsection (4) take place must take into account the legitimate interests of the alleged infringer in not disclosing manufacturing and business secrets". Section 50(2) states: "On the request of the owner of the title of protection, or of a licensee if the licensee has requested the owner to institute court proceedings for specific relief and the owner has refused or failed to do so, the court may grant an injunction to prevent infringement, an imminent infringement, or an unlawful act referred to in section [41](2), and may award damages and grant any other remedy provided for in the general law". Section 50(3) of the draft legislation states: "Any person who knowingly performs an act which constitutes an infringement as defined in subsection (1) or an unlawful act as defined in section [41](2) commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of $___ and to imprisonment for ___ years". There is no provision in the draft for the indemnification of a defendant by a Judge in the event of abuse by the defendant. There is no provision in the draft to authorize the release of counterfeit goods by the customs authorities. There are no procedures available in the draft to suspend the exporting of counterfeit goods. There is no provision authorizing anyone to destruct or dispose of infringing goods. There are provisions for imprisonment and the imposition of a fine, as shown the sum for the fine has not been determined as yet. The figure determined would ensure that it's a deterrent from infringement. There is no provision in the draft legislation for seizure, forfeiture and destruction of infringing goods, but in accordance with section 46 of the Copyright Act, detention and seizure authority is given to the Police officers.
