+ blocking injunctions
= perfect party
As reported by this blog, in its judgment on 6 July 2016, the Court of Appeal of England and Wales upheld the validity of blocking injunctions against intermediaries (ISPs) in respect of online trade mark infringements and burdened ISPs with the costs of implementing them.
The IPKat is partnering with Simmons & Simmons for a free rapid response event to be held on Thursday 28 July at the London offices of Simmons & Simmons.
Come join us and a panel of experts, to discuss the impact of the judgment on UK’s blocking injunction jurisdiction!
