I. Invalidating European Patents

1. Opposition

2. Invalidating EP patents after expiry of the opposition period


Invalidation of EP patents may be of interest in a variety of situations, like precautionary oppositions, preparation for entering the market with a potentially infringing product or being faced with an infringement action. In the first part of this section, we will focus on practical advice for success in EPO opposition proceedings, taking into account the new procedural rules aiming at acceleration of opposition proceedings. 

After the opposition period has expired, the national parts of an EP patent have to be invalidated separately. In the second part, we will give an overview over the German invalidation proceedings and will also touch briefly on invalidation proceedings in other EP countries.


II. Standard related patents and their enforcement

1. Proving infringement

2. FRAND defense


Industry standards are usually decided on by committees having representatives of major players in the respective industry. Each of these players and possibly also other parties may have patents covering features of the standard. In the first part of this section, we will discuss under which circumstances it is sufficient to show that a product uses the standard to prove infringement. In the second part, we will deal with the so-called FRAND defense, where the defendant offered to pay a license. Various courts have clarified under which circumstances this defense may be used successfully.


III. Patent indemnification practice in Europe

1. Germany

2. Rest of Europe


After a successful infringement action, claiming damages is usually the next step. In the first part of this section, we will focus on Germany as one of the most important countries for patent litigation in Europe. In Germany, there are three possible ways how damages may be calculated, and the patent owner may choose a method. We will discuss the pros and cons for each approach. In the second part, we will give a brief overview over the practice of some other major EP countries.




IV. Crossborder injunction in EU ports

1. General principles of crossborder litigation

2. Injunctions


With infringement being handled by national courts in Europe, crossborder litigation is of great interest. In the first part of this section, we will give a brief overview over some general issues related to crossborder litigation. In the second part, we will focus on injunctions to prevent import of infringing products via major EU ports, where goods intended for various European markets will arrive.
