Abstract: Award of damages as a relief in trademark infringement, has increasingly assumed importance in the modernized economies of the world; though grant of punitive damages is more recent. Initially, in order to restrain infringers, the courts usually granted injunction and in rare cases, granted damages. Damages are awarded to monetarily compensate the aggrieved party that has suffered injury. However, with increasing instances of piracy and growth of counterfeit goods, the courts have come to realize that awarding punitive damages may be a necessary deterrent to protect the interest of trademark holders. This article compares the principles governing damages in trademark infringement in United Kingdom, European Union, and United States of America while rendering an insight into the principle of damages as conceived under the Indian trademark law.
