Course Description

Intellectual property rights have no real commercial value unless they can be asserted against others. To what extent should the owner of these rights be entitled to interfere with normal commercial practices in a modern global economy? The remedies available directly influence the value of the intellectual property right. Courts have granted intellectual property rights holders broad search and seizure powers and restraining rights through Anton Piller Orders and John Doe Injunctions. This course examines the full extent of the remedies available to intellectual property holders, including injunctions, damages, accounting of profits, punitive damages, and delivery up, and how these remedies can be enforced internationally, particularly with respect to “piracy” and “grey marketing”.
