NEW INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY SMALL CLAIMS TRACK
November 29 2012.


A new small claims track has been introduced to the Patents County Court to speed up the court process and make it cheaper and easier, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses, to protect their intellectual property (IP) rights.

The small claims track will provide copyright, trademark and unregistered design holders the option of pursuing basic IP disputes through an informal hearing, without legal representation. This is expected to reduce significantly the cost of pursuing IP infringement cases.

Claims allocated to the small claims track will be subject to cost restrictions of £5,000 or less to ensure they are proportionate to what is at stake.
