IP Remedies: Consumer Products

November 14, 2018

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

We are very grateful to our client, Emran Sheikh of Heys International, Ltd., one of Canada’s largest luggage companies, for agreeing to share some of his experiences with IP as part of this first Bereskin & Parr IP Remedies webinar.
