Patent infringement

In the instance of a patent infringement, the infringed party can claim from the infringing party for instance omission and damages. In this respect, legal remedies for enforcing the claims, such as requests for legitimacy, warnings or preliminary injunctions can be used. In any case, it is recommendable in patent infringement matters to discuss the factual situation in extenso and to coordinate suitable measures with a view to the substantial cost risk involved.

The infringement proceedings of a European patent are governed by national law.
