SEEK Workshop: Patent Litigation in Europe - A Story of War and Settlement?
The international workshop is located within the framework of the research programme "Strengthening Efficiency and Competitiveness in the European Knowledge Economies" (SEEK). During the workshop we will present the results of an analysis of patent-related court cases at national courts in the UK, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. We will compare bifurcated systems to systems, where validity and infringement cases are heard before the same court. The implications for predictability, cost figures, and strategic results relevant to the market are one of the core topics for discussion in order to derive political implications for the further development of the patent enforcement system in Europe. Key Questions are: - What is the empirical incidence of patent litigation before civil courts in Europe? - What are the patterns of outcome at different courts and in different countries? - Is there a best practice in Europe? - What are the implications of the shift from a fragmented litigation system to a unified European patent court?
