Project description:
Denmark participates, alongside with other member states, in the preparation phase on legislative and non-legislative instruments from UNCITRAL. However, Denmark is reluctant to adopt and implement the very same legislative and non-legislative instruments. Accordingly, the outset of this PhD thesis is to investigate the advantages and disadvantages in regard to implementation of the latest model law adopted by UNCITRAL in 2017 concerning electronic transferable records.

Project description:

The project involves comparative legal analysis of approaches towards injunctions over patents employed in the EU and the USA in the light of legislative provisions implemented in TRIPS. Despite patents grant considerably strong monopoly to its owner which includes the right to prohibit exploitation of the given patent by third parties, in some special cases the monopoly above is limited by the courts during consideration of applications for injunctive relief. Therefore, the project addresses the ratio between patent rights and practical possibility of their enforcement in both jurisdiction.
