Hart Publishing Company has now published Patent Enforcement Worldwide: Writings in Honour of Dieter Stauder, Third Edition, edited by Christopher Heath. Here is a link to the webpage for the book, and here is a link to the table of contents.
The book description is as follows:
This book features 15 country reports on the patent enforcement practice of the world’s most litigated countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Litigation strategies for both right owners and alleged infringers are explained against the background of case law on: types of action, standing to sue, jurisdiction, obtaining evidence, provisional and final measures, trial practice, types of infringement, remedies and counterclaims, costs and issues of retrial, threats and wrongful enforcement. Special chapters cover the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Agreement provisions on enforcement, enforcement issues in the European Community, international cross-border litigation and border measures.
The reports are written by patent practitioners or academic experts in the field, and the homogenous structure of the country reports allows for an easy identification of best practices and strategic considerations on the choice of jurisdiction.I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Heath on coauthoring chapter 1, Comparative Overview and the TRIPs Enforcement Provisions, and I hope that readers will find this third edition as useful as I found the previous edition back when I was preparing my book on comparative patent remedies in 2011-12. My only regret is that I was unable to attend the book's debut at the celebration for Professor Dieter Stauder in Munich on October 23. Congratulations and thanks to the many contributors who have made this new edition possible.
