Abstract

Describes the application of the Brussels Convention 1968 to jurisdiction over actions for infringements of intellectual property rights in Europe, notes the uncertainties surrounding jurisdiction over actions for infringements of the registered intellectual property rights (principally patents and trade marks), especially when validity is put in issue, and considers the legal and practical merits of a range of possible outcomes.
