Following the success of the first edition of Patent Litigation, published in 26 and widely well received by both practitioners and clients, this second edition aims to cover even more topics of importance to those involved in patent disputes. To keep up with this continuously evolving area of law, more questions have been included addressing strategies for patent enforcement and defence, the role of expert evidence and the timescale for proceedings. A number of influential jurisdictions have also been added to this edition, making the coverage even more comprehensive and providing an indispensible guide to those involved in managing all aspects of patent litigation.CONTENTS•Sources of Law •Court System•Substantive Law•Parties to Litigation•Enforcement Options•Procedure in Civil Courts•Final Remedies•Preliminary Relief•Appeal Procedure•Litigation Costs•Forthcoming legislation•Useful referencesCONTRIBUTOR INFORMATIONGilbert + TobinAustraliaSalomonowitz Horak RechtsanwälteAustriaNauta DutilhBelgiumKarin Klempp Sociedade de AdvogadosBrazilHylands Law FirmChinaGorrissen FederspielDenmarkFalconi PuigEcuador Hengeler MuellerGermany Malamis & MalamisGreeceDanubiaHungary Anand & AnandIndia Gilat, Bareket & Co., Reinhold Cohn group.Israel Studio Legale Jacobacci & AssociatiItaly Mori Hamada & MatsumotoJapanShearn Delamore & CoMalaysia Nauta DutilhNetherlands JWPPolandOne Legal LLCSingapore Hahn & Hahn IncSouth AfricaCUATRECASAS, GONÇALVES PEREIRASpainAdvokatfirman Lindahl KB SwedenLenz & Staehelin Swizterland TIPLO Attorneys-at-LawTaiwan Tilleke & Gibbins Thailand & VietnamSlaughter & MayUKKenyon & KenyonUSAEDITORS & EDITORIAL BOARDDr. Thierry CalameAn expert in intellectual property matters, with a particular emphasis in patent law.
