Intellectual Property Jurisdiction Strategies

Where to Litigate Unitary Rights vs National Rights in the EU

Torsten B. Larsen

The study offers IP practitioners a meticulous yet principled basis for their jurisdictional decisions and shows why it is advantageous for infringers to litigate based on a national IP right and rightholders to litigate based on a European unitary IP right.
