DLA Piper is pleased to announce the launch of Global Patent Laws.

Global Patent Laws is designed to provide you with an overview of the key patent laws and dispute resolution procedures that are relevant to businesses operating in a number of countries around the world. Key procedures include:

  • What acts infringe a patent;
  • The availability of and approach to granting preliminary injunctions;
  • The ability to obtain evidence; and
  • The approach to assessing validity and the typical time to trial.

For companies operating in multiple countries, managing the risk of, and successfully bringing or defending, patent proceedings can often depend on strategic exploitation of the differences in approach between jurisdictions. Accordingly our guide also allows you to compare the laws and procedures of one country with that in other countries.

We will continue to add more jurisdictions to this guide over time.
