Securing a High Court Victory in IP Infringement Claim

    View Author October 2016

    Our UK Intellectual Property team has secured a High Court victory for our client, Process Components Limited (PCL), in a case concerning the sale and licence of intellectual property rights in powder processing machines. The ruling is of wider general interest as the judge, Mrs Justice Proudman, reviews and comments on existing case law on some core contractual concepts, specifically how the courts approach the interpretation of contracts (considering Arnold v Britton and earlier authorities) and the tests around estoppel by representation and convention.
