New discovery is located in proximity to the B-9 Cluster fields operated by the company Adani Welspun Exploration finds gas in the MB-OSN-2005/2 block, offshore India. (Credit: QR9iudjz0 from FreeImages) Adani Welspun Exploration (AWEL) has made its first ever gas discovery in the MB-OSN-2005/2 block in the Tapti-Daman Sector of the Mumbai offshore basin in India.The company is a joint venture between Indian conglomerate Adani Group and construction engineering company Welspun Enterprises.According to Welspun Enterprises, the drilling of the well in the offshore block has confirmed the presence of considerable quantities of gas and condensate.The company said that three potential zones were identified during the drilling of the well. From these, two objects tested by drill stem testing (DST) flowed a significant quantity of gas and condensate to the surface, said Welspun Enterprises.The company revealed that one of the objects flowed 9.7 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of gas along with condensate of 378 barrels/day (B/D) via a 28/64” choke at 2,659 pound per square inch (psi) of flowing tubing head pressure (FTHP).The second object flowed 9.1mmscfd of gas along with condensate of 443B/D via a 28/64” choke at 2566psi FTHP.Adani Welspun Exploration has 100% participative interest (PI) and is the operator of the MB-OSN-2005/2 block, which spans 714.6km2.The MB-OSN-2005/2 block was awarded to the joint venture under the New Exploration Licensing Policy VII (NELP-VII) bid round.Welspun Enterprises said that early indications showed the occurrence of gas-bearing reservoirs within the sandstone reservoirs of the Mahuva and Daman formations.Production is already underway in the Tapti-Daman Sector by other operators.Adani Welspun Exploration MD Sandeep Garg said: “In addition to being value accretive for the Company, this discovery could be a significant breakthrough for our nation given India’s focus to nearly triple the share of natural gas in its energy mix by the end of this decade.”“The Company is also an operator with 100% PI of an adjacent Discovered Small Field B-9 Cluster in this prolific gas bearing zone. The proximity of these two prospective Blocks will enable AWEL to synergise and optimize development of both the blocks.”Welspun Enterprises holds a 35% stake in Adani Welspun Exploration through its subsidiary Welspun Natural Resources. The remaining 65% stake in the upstream joint venture is held by Adani Group’s flagship company Adani Enterprises.

As we say goodbye to 2017 and ring in 2018, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look back on some of the biggest game-changing decisions from last year in intellectual property and look forward to how they might affect you and the world in 2018. While there were many to choose from, we selected three – a patent case, a trademark case, and a copyright case.PATENTSSince the passage of America Invents Act (AIA) in 2012, there has existed a faster and cheaper alternative to the federal court system for attacking the validity of an issued U.S. Patent. An inter partes review is a trial proceeding conducted at the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board to review the patentability of one or more claims in an issued patent under certain limited circumstances. A third party instituting an inter partes review must show that there is a reasonable likelihood that the petitioner would prevail with respect to at least one claim challenged. If the proceeding is instituted and not dismissed, a final determination by the Board will be issued within one year (much faster than the typical case in federal court).The constitutionality of the inter partes review is under attack in the Oil States Energy Services, LLC v. Greene’s Energy Group, LLC, which was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in November 2017. The sole issue now being considered by the Supreme Court is whether inter partes review violates the Constitution by extinguishing private property rights through a non-Article III forum without a jury. A few years back (120 to be exact), in McCormick Harvesting Machine v. Aultman, the U.S. Supreme Court addressed this issue under similar circumstances, holding that “[t]he only authority competent to set a patent aside, or to annul it, or to correct it for any reason whatever, is vested in the courts of the United States, and not in the department which issued the patent.” Stay tuned to see if this “ancient” interpretation of the Constitution holds up in 2018.TRADEMARKSIn Our September 2017 Blog and Newsletter, we reported to you on the death of disparagement in the world of trademarks. In Matal v. Tam, Supreme Court ruled that the United States Patent & Trademark Office (PTO) could not refuse registration of the name “The Slants” to an Asian-American dance rock band from Portland, Oregon on the grounds that the phrase constitutes a slur and is offensive to Asian-Americans. In doing so, the Supreme Court ruled that the trademark law barring disparaging terms infringes on free speech rights, and, as such is unconstitutional.The issue was raised again last month in In re Brunetti, a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The Federal Circuit held that the “immoral” or “scandalous” marks provision of the Lanham Act is also facially invalid under the First Amendment. Brunettiis the owner and founder of FUCT – a clothing brand that has been referred to as one of the pioneering brands of modern streetwear, often incorporating various elements and icons of pop culture alongside anti-government and anti-religious campaigns into their designs. It is worth noting that, in its opinion, the Federal Circuit concluded that strict scrutiny (high burden of proof), rather than intermediate scrutiny (intermediate burden of scrutiny as the name implies) is the applicable standard in assessing the issue because the law “regulates the expressive components of speech, not the commercial components of speech”. Even if the government concludes that the “immoral” or “scandalous” provision cannot be saved in light of Tam, there may be good reason to request review by the entire panel of the Federal Circuit or the U.S. Supreme Court on the proper level of scrutiny to be applied, particularly since federal trademarks are. by there very nature, “commercial”. Stay tuned!COPYRIGHTSSection 411 of the Copyright Act has long provided that “no civil action for infringement of the copyright in any United States work shall be instituted until preregistration or registration of the copyright claim has been made”. At present, there exists a split between the various Circuit Courts of the United States as to just exactly when such a registration or preregistration “has been made”. In the Fifth Circuit (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi) and Ninth Circuit (California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana) this is considered to have occurred when the copyright holder delivers the required application, deposit, and fee to the Copyright Office. In contrast, the Tenth Circuit (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico) and Eleventh Circuit (Alabama, Georgia, Florida) require that the Copyright Office “act” on the application before registration or preregistration is considered to have been made. To complicate things further, our own Seventh Circuit (Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin) has issued conflicting opinions on the issue.With any luck, the U.S. Supreme Court will resolve this difference sometime in 2018. The loser of the 2017 decision of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeal in Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com, LLC is requesting the U.S. Supreme Court review the case and resolve the split between the circuits once and for all. At the present time, the U.S. Supreme Court has not yet determined whether it will hear the case and has asked the U.S. Solicitor General to weigh in with his views on the issue. Hopefully, this is a sign that the Supreme Court is considering hearing the case, particularly for those of us situated in the Seventh Circuit where there is no clear answer to this question.Do you have issues involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, or trade secrets, or want to know more about protecting your valuable intellectual property?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country star Morgan Wallen has been suspended indefinitely from his label and seen his music pulled by radio stations and streaming services Wednesday after video surfaced of him shouting a racial slur.,Big Loud Records said in a statement that Wallen’s contract has been suspended indefinitely. Republic Records, which he is co-signed to, said it agreed with Big Loud’s decision and said “such behavior will not be tolerated.”,The video, which was first published by TMZ on Tuesday night, showed Wallen outside a home in Nashville, Tennessee, yelling profanities and a racial slur.,Wallen said in a statement to TMZ that he is embarrassed and sorry.,“I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back. There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better,” his statement said.,He’s one of the genre’s biggest young stars. His sophomore album, “Dangerous: The Double Album,” is spending its third week atop the Billboard 200 chart and it has set several streaming records, even besting the recent release from country star Luke Combs. Wallen is also one of the few country acts to score a Top 10 hit on the pop charts, thanks to the success of “7 Summers” and “Wasted on You.”,But the fall from the top has been swift.,“In light of Morgan Wallen’s recent actions involving the use of a racial slur, we have made the decision to remove his music and content from our stations effective immediately,” according to a statement from iHeartMedia, which has hundreds of radio stations across the country.,The Academy of Country Music, which is currently taking nominations for their annual awards show in April, said in a statement they would “halt” Wallen’s eligibility for this year’s show and will also be reviewing the awards eligibility and submission process. “The Academy does not condone or support intolerance or behavior that does not align with our commitment and dedication to diversity and inclusion,” the ACM statement said.,As of Wednesday morning, streaming apps like Spotify and Apple Music don’t have his songs in their most popular country music playlists, where normally Wallen had multiple songs from his new album.,SiriusXM and Pandora also removed his music from their playlists, according to a spokesman for SiriusXM. The music television channel CMT said it was removing his appearances from all its platforms.,The Tennessee-born singer who has hits with songs like “Whiskey Glasses” and “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line, has done a lot of public apologizing lately.,Wallen was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct in May 2020 after getting kicked out of a downtown Nashville bar.,In October, “Saturday Night Live” dropped him from a scheduled performance on their show after he violated COVID-19 protocols when videos appeared on social media of him partying with fans in Alabama. He was later invited back on the show in December, where he appeared in a skit making fun of himself.,Other country stars criticized his actions publicly.,“It actually IS representative of our town because this isn’t his first ‘scuffle’ and he just demolished a huge streaming record last month regardless,” tweeted country star Maren Morris. “We all know it wasn’t his first time using that word. We keep them rich and protected at all costs with no recourse.”,Other music stars have faced backlash for using racial slurs or derogatory language. Justin Bieber apologized in 2014 for using a racial slur joke in a video from when he was a teenager.,In the past, country radio has sometimes ignored offensive behavior by male stars, even as female artists like the Chicks, formerly known as the Dixie Chicks, were removed from radio for criticizing the U.S. president. Country star Jason Aldean wore blackface for a Halloween costume in 2015, but never issued an apology, and he remains one of the top selling country artists.,Marcus K. Dowling, a music journalist who has written about Wallen, said the country music industry has experienced a reckoning in the last eight months prompted by the Black Lives Matter movement that has had an effect on the industry’s reaction to Wallen’s words.,“I feel like it set a trip cord that never existed in country music for racial behavior,” said Dowling. “It was inarguably the Black people who work and occupy space in the genre who set that boundary. And any artist, even an artist who has sold well and has over 500 million streams in three weeks, if they cross that line, they were going to be impacted.”
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — President Joe Biden’s announcement that the U.S. will end its support of a Saudi-led coalition’s yearslong war against Yemen’s Houthi rebels likely will increase pressure on the kingdom to end its campaign there. However, reaching an enduring peace for the Arab world’s poorest country still remains in question. Yemen’s Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, remain firmly entrenched in the country’s north and hold its capital, Sanaa. The rest of the country remains held by a series of competing tribal, regional and political alliances, backed overall by the Saudi-led coalition that’s been fighting there since 2015. How those fractious forces respond will be key.
