Speaker: Ewan Grist, Bird & Bird
This lecture will set out the main changes and practical points arising from the introduction of the Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Act 2017 which came into force from 1 October 2017.
The new Act sets out a more detailed and comprehensive structure to govern the use of threats to sue in respect of IP infringements, setting out what is and what is not actionable by a prospective defendant, and the defences available to the threatenor.
Since a threat is the normal first step in any enforcement effort, understanding the new landscape is of fundamental importance to both rights holders and their advisors alike.
