Speaker: Guy Tritton, Hogarth Chambers
This talk will examine in depth whether a court of an EU Member State (including UK) has jurisdiction to try acts of trade mark infringement which occur on the Internet and if so, whether it can grant pan-EU relief or not. In particular, it looks at:
- The now very different approach to infringement of national trade marks and EUTMs;
- The common misunderstanding that it depends on whether the consumers of a country are “targeted” by the website;
- When a court of a Member State has jurisdiction for pan-EU relief vs relief limited to that state;
- Recent case law developments across the EU including the recent referral by the Court of Appeal in AMS Neve Ltd v Heritage Audio SL on jurisdiction for online EUTM infringement;
- Jurisdiction vs cause of action for online infringements. Do not confuse the two.
