Issuing and Tailoring Patent Injunctions – A Cross-Jurisdictional Comparison and Synthesis
This chapter is from the edited volume “Injunctions in Patent Law: A Trans-Atlantic Dialogue on Flexibility and Tailoring” (Jorge Contreras & Martin Husovec, eds., Cambridge Univ. Press, forthcoming). It offers a unique analytical synthesis of eleven national and two regional/international descriptions of flexibilities in patent remedies authored by leading scholars in the field. This synthesis identifies a range of similarities and differences among jurisdictions, explains the principal features of these different legal systems, provides an analytical framework for comparing them, and offers observations about trends and the outlook for the future. The countries studied include Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, with additional commentary on the European Union and the World Trade Organization TRIPS Agreement.
