Disputes revolving around intellectual property rights and information technology are commonplace in the current market. These disputes have gained importance especially due to the value companies started to attribute to their brand and proprietary technologies in the last few decades.
When it comes to litigating over IP rights and IT, proceedings can be classified (in broad terms) in four different groups:
- Proceedings concerned with the registration, revocation and validity of intellectual property rights such as patents, trademarks, designs and other similar rights;
- Proceedings concerned with the infringement of intellectual property (including registered and unregistered intellectual property, and copyrights and neighbouring rights);
- Proceedings concerned with breach of licensing or transfer of technology agreements and/or determination of ownership;
- Proceedings concerned with competition law, whether in relation to anti-trust regulation or with regard to marketing practices and data protection;
