Delhi HC dismisses Google's appeal against messaging patent decision

The Delhi High Court has dismissed Google's appeal against the rejection of its patent application for 'Managing Instant Messaging Sessions on Multiple Devices'. The court upheld the decision of the Assistant Controller of Patents and Designs, stating that the application lacked novelty and inventive step. The court also fined Google Rs 1 lakh for not disclosing information about the refusal of a patent by the European Patent Office. The court determined that the core concept of managing sessions across multiple devices and user-defined settings for messaging sessions were already present in prior art.
