article in The Times on Monday had the subheading “the cost of justice is in danger of allowing big companies to ride roughshod over rivals” and, whilst not solely about intellectual property, included comments from the founder of
Trunki(a company that has been involved in high profile design and copyright infringement cases) that given the costs of protecting the rights of entrepreneurs/SMEs, “the system is broken”. We
postedback in April about the increase in the fees at IPEC. Whilst the negative and chilling effect outcomes highlighted by The Times may be the case for the traditional law firm approach, there are ways of dealing with protection and enforcement of rights for the smaller and less powerful party such as those we can offer at Stobbs. Give us a call if you would like more information on these options.
