Worldwide Patent Litigation

Patent litigation has different rules in different countries.  Increasingly we are seeing disputes involving multi-national companies have simultaneous lawsuits in different parts of the world, involving both damages and injunctive relief.  Patent litigation successes and failures have significant leverage in determining the resolution between multinational companies. 


This course will explore different legal frameworks for patent litigation in different parts of the world, with a particular focus on the US, Europe, China, India, Brazil and Colombia.  By the end of the course, students will understand the significant aspects of each countries’ laws, and will explore how damages, injunctive relief and validity determinations differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.  Students will experience this firsthand by hearing from litigation experts from around the world with the opportunity for interaction and engagement.  Students will also understand the particular policy issues and differences between the US and other regions.
