Dr Christof Augenstein, Sören Dahm and Miriam Kiefer lecture at VPP seminar “The Infringement Trial”

Last thursday until saturday, a three-day VPP seminar “The Infringement Trial” took place in presence in Berlin. Our partners Dr Christof Augenstein, Sören Dahm and Miriam Kiefer LL.M. lectured in rotation on the details of patent infringement proceedings.

In the seminar, which takes place once a year on this basis, the enforcement of technical IP rights in the practice was covered in detail and intensively discussed with the participants. The lecturers provided detailed knowledge about the process of an infringement case, from notification to warning, to court proceedings including enforcement – in each case from the perspective of the patent owner and the defendant. References to proceedings in front of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) were explained as well.

Our thanks goes to the audience for their participation in the VPP seminar, for the interesting input as well as the very valuable exchange around the lectures during these three days.
For those who could not make it in October, there will be another two-day event on “Infringement Litigation before the Unified Patent Court (UPC)” on 3 and 4 November 2022 at Maritim Hotel, Munich. We would like to inform you that this date is already fully booked, but that it is possible to be added to the waiting list. Detailed information and a comprehensive programme overview around the seminar can be found here.

VPP Seminars 2023:
Due to the huge demand, planning for a continuation of the seminars in 2023 is already underway. As soon as the first date in January is fixed, we will inform you immediately.

Further information and seminar announcements are available on the VPP e.V. website.
