Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) Governing IP claims in the Patents County Court (PCC)

Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) Governing IP claims in the Patents County Court (PCC)

Changes to the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) governing intellectual property claims in the Patents County Court (PCC) of England and Wales come into effect as of  1 October 2010.

The changes aim to provide a simpler route for litigants with lower value claims. The significant change is the introduction of a new scale of costs limiting costs for each stage of the process. This limits a litigant's exposure to the potential high costs of litigation. A total cap on costs of £50,000.00 for a claim relating to liability and £25,000 for an inquiry as to damages or account of profits has also now been introduced.
