Baker Botts’ Intellectual Property (IP) lawyers in London are reviewing the implications of these changes to better understand the impact on IP infringement proceedings.
Zarah Rasool, a Senior Associate experienced in patents, trade marks, copyright, designs and confidential information, can discuss the following:
• The extension of the prohibition against threats to IP infringement litigation outside the UK;
• The available remedies for manufacturers, importers, distributors, customers and users against rights holders for unjustified threats, which include damages for loss caused by the threats and injunctions against further threats; and
• How rights holders can distinguish threats of litigation made legitimately from those used to damage a commercial rival and the impact of this on legal costs and complexity of pre-action conduct in infringement cases.
