Infringement of Property Rights
Infringement actions serve in enforcing intellectual property rights, particularly by way of claims for injunctive and punitive relief. To be examined in the case of patents is whether a product or the standard for a standard-based product falls within the protective scope of the patent. This requires the highest degree of technical acumen. For patents which could gain a dominant position in the market, e.g. patents essential to a standard, both parties must also have complied with the FRAND terms in advance of an infringement action. Further complications arise if infringement actions need to be coordinated among multiple property rights or multiple countries.
