IP Remedies: Consumer Products

The powerful remedies that IP owners get when a Court finds that their rights are valid and infringed raises the value of IP rights. When we work with our clients to brandish their IP against competitors, or to respond to such threats, our analysis is informed by our experience in arguing for and against these remedies in Court. In this webinar we will discuss the main remedies in IP cases, with a consumer products focus:

• Interlocutory Injunctions;
• Permanent Injunctions;
• Damages;
• Profits;
• Costs.

We will also share a list of 10 things to consider when assessing your position in an IP dispute.
