  • How do the major European patent jurisdictions apply the law on direct and indirect infringement and how will the UPC apply it?
  • This article widens an earlier discussion about the approach of the major national patent courts in Europe to second medical use claims, to examine broader issues of direct and indirect infringement that arise in practice, and which may share common principles.

The article also outlines common ground between these courts that may provide the basis for an approach in the UPC.
