What is probable outcome for the defendant?

Generally the accused would be immediately arrested. He would be then produced by the police within 24 hrs before the magistrate who would send him either to Police custody (PC) for further interrogation or Judicial custody (JC).

The accused would apply for bail which generally is granted in IPR matters. Further the police would register the case under relevant act (Trade Marks and Copyright) combining with sections under Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Incase the accused is convicted he could be imprisoned for 3-7 years. In the Indian context the stigma attached to someone going behind bars is unimaginable.

Criminal law or penal law is the body of law that relates to crime. It regulates social conduct and proscribes whatever is threatening, harmful, or otherwise endangering to the property, health, safety, and moral welfare of people. It includes the punishment of people who violate these laws.
