This module deals with the intricacies of cross-border IP litigation and border control. Students are exposed to enforcement practice in the EU, issues of private international law, and the Enforcement Directive. The course serves as a precursor to the Comparative IP Litigation course later in the year. Taught by: Frank Eijsvogels (Hoyng Monnegier Amsterdam)
At the end of this course, the student is conversant with the European rules on cross-border litigation and (border) enforcement.
