An example has been set by Australia in the case of tobacco guidelines. Recently, it was found that the High Court of Australia has cancelled the challenge of top tobacco companies, which claimed that the government has attacked their intellectual property.
The allegation on the government was leveled by a number of top tobacco companies. Some of the companies were Japan Tobacco Inc., British American Tobacco Plc, and Philip Morris International Inc. Now, when the government has won the ruling, the companies will now have to sell their products in uniform packets. They would also not be allowed to display any kind of trademark as well.
If to look from the perspective of the government then it will be revealed that they have to pay huge amount of health tax. In addition, many people lose their lives due to tobacco products, as 900,000 Australians have lost their lives due to the same in last six decades.
Tobacco companies are fuming over the thought that same ruling might be introduced in other countries as well. Japan Tobacco said in their defense that each country has its own rules, which should not get affected by the ruling of one country.
