The copyright of the design is with the Indian Army for 10 years extendable by another five years. This has been done to prevent unauthorised vendors from manufacturing and selling the combat pattern dress in the open market as it was posing a serious security threat for the Indian Army and the nation as a whole. As per orders on the subject, these uniforms will only be sold in the Unit Run Canteens of the Indian Army. Due to this IPR, the Indian Army now possesses exclusive rights to the design and can file a legal suit against any design infringement and unauthorized reproduction of this design, the Southern Command states in its release.
