Section 22 of the Designs Act, 2000 provides that any fraudulent or obvious imitation of a registered design without the consent of the proprietor is unlawful and also prohibits the import of such material which closely resembles a registered Design.

The section very specifically provides that in a civil case compensation payable shall not exceed Rs. 50,000/- in respect of infringement of one registered Design. Because the compensation payable is statutorily limited, this is a good ground of insisting an interim injunction even before the commencement of trial.
