Intellectual Property and Copyright

Has someone infringed your intellectual property or copyright or is someone alleging you have? Do you need or are you being threatened with an injunction to stop the infringement?

I recently acted for an education establishment who discovered that their course content had been copied wholesale by a competitor and was being sold online. An application for an urgent injunction was made to the High Court Business and Property Court, Intellectual Property List (CHD). Very soon after an initial appearance when the judge described the respondent’s defence as “an interesting take on copyright law” with a raised eyebrow, the respondent made an offer for damages and costs which was accepted.

I am a member of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation) Arbitral and Mediator panels. On behalf of WIPO I was a speaker at the 2018 Global IP Exchange where I received the following feedback: “The content and delivery of your presentation was rated 4.7 out of 5… the best feedback we received for any of the sessions over the two days”

I also have experience defending claims for injunctions in respect of performing rights licences. Click here for more information.
