Case # 1:
A typical education franchise organization had around 80 per cent of its outlets owned and run by the franchisor. The rest were all franchise outlets or “centres”. The franchisor had set up 10 of his centres initially and run them as successful centres before venturing into franchising.
The brand name was popularized initially through aggressive traffic – oriented advertising for the franchisor’s centres. Franchise centres were started initially in the territories where these centres existed, thereby leveraging the brand awareness that had already been created.
The system was clearly documented in a set of seven manuals. These were the start – up, marketing, academic administration, course conduct, placement, accounts and centre management manuals. By using the manuals, know – how could be transferred easily and the centres could become operational very fast. The franchise chain grew at the rate of over 100 centres every year for five years and became the largest network of education centres worldwide.

Case # 2:
A leading manufacturer of cosmetics and toiletries sets up a chain of saloons under franchising arrangement. The offer document clearly mentioned that the franchisor did not have any prior experience in this business. However, in order to develop his products, the franchisor had accessed a large amount of data collected through market surveys and customer feedback. Using this data, the franchisor created hair, face and body treatment packages, which the customer could avail of at any franchise saloon.

The Coca Cola Company

... It was 1886, and in New York Harbor, workers were constructing the Statue of Liberty. Eight hundred miles away, another great American symbol was about to be unveiled. Like many people who change history, John Pemberton, an Atlanta pharmacist, was inspired by simple curiosity. One afternoon, he stirred up a fragrant, caramel-colored liquid and, when it was done, he carried it a few doors down to Jacobs' Pharmacy. Here, the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customers who all agreed -- this new drink was something special. So Jacobs' Pharmacy put it on sale for five cents a glass.   Pemberton's bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, named the mixture Coca-Cola®, and wrote it out in his distinct script. To this day, Coca-Cola is written the same way. In the first year, Pemberton sold just 9 glasses of Coca-Cola a day.   A century later, The Coca-Cola Company has produced more than 10 billion gallons of syrup. Unfortunately for Pemberton, he died in 1888 without realizing the success of the beverage he had created.   Over the course of three years, 1888-1891, Atlanta businessman Asa Griggs Candler secured rights to the business for a total of about $2,300. Candler would become the Company's first president, and the first to bring real vision to the business and the brand. (The Coca cola Company website) Its popularity would not stay......

In the past nations often went to war for the protection and advancement of their economic interests. Things have changed now. Under the international order envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations war is no longer an instrument of State policy. Now-a-days there are wars between corporations, more particularly corporations having multi-national operations, for the protection and advancement of their economic interests. These wars are fought on the economic plane but some of the battles spill over to Courts of law. The present case is one such legal battle. The combatants are two American multi national corporations dominating the soft drinks market having operations in a number of countries. On the one side is Coca Cola Company (respondent No. 1), hereinafter referred to as "Coca Cola," and on the other side is PEPSICO INC.(for short "Pepsi"), and its subsidiaries and subsidiaries of the subsidiaries which are under, direct or indirect, control of Pepsi.
