Publication cover

The second edition of Case-law of National Courts on Intellectual Property Crime (IPC) summarizes national judgments and highlights the most prevalent problems pertaining to crimes of counterfeiting and online piracy. It aims to demonstrate how national courts in various jurisdictions across EU Member States and Third Contributing Countries interpret and apply these criminal offenses.

Summaries are categorised according to the main issue addressed in each case. The document also provides links to the full text of the judgments in their original language, as well as references to relevant national legislation and other related court cases.

The document was prepared within the framework of the Intellectual Property Crime Project, launched in March 2021 and based on a Service Level Agreement signed between the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the European Union Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation (Eurojust).

The case-law overview is not an exhaustive document and it should not be used as a replacement of the full text of the judgments analysed therein. It is intended to be used for reference and as a supplementary tool for practitioners in the IPC field.
