When intellectual property rights are infringed it is important to act quickly, otherwise there is a risk that the right might be diluted or even cease to exist. In many cases it is sufficient to contact the offending party (with a warning letter) and request that the infringement ceases. In other cases it may be better to take legal action directly, for example by filing an opposition with the registration authority, or filing an application for revocation.
Many disputes can be resolved through negotiations between the parties. We have extensive experience of conflict management and infringement cases, both administrative ones (which are handled by the registration authority) in Sweden and at the EUIPO as well as in general courts.
We assist in assessing the conflict and advice on the most appropriate action, whether it regards:
– Warning letters (cease-and-desist)
– Settlement negotiations
– Filing oppositions or defending in opposition proceedings
– Filing application for cancellation or defending the registration in a cancellation proceeding, or
– Court proceedings
