Patent Enforcement Worldwide

Writings in Honour of Dieter Stauder (Third Edition)

Edited by: Christopher Heath

This festschrift features 15 country reports on the patent enforcement practice of the world's most litigated countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Litigation strategies for both right owners and alleged infringers are explained against the background of case law on: types of action * standing to sue * jurisdiction * obtaining evidence * provisional and final measures * trial practice * types of infringement * remedies and counterclaims * costs and issues of retrial * threats and wrongful enforcement. Special chapters cover the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Agreement provisions on enforcement, enforcement issues in the European Community, international cross-border litigation, and border measures. The reports are written by patent practitioners or academic experts in the field, and the homogenous structure of the country reports allows for an easy identification of best practices and strategic considerations on the choice of jurisdiction.
