Expert talk about the latest trends in German patent law – our partner Dr Christof Augenstein as a guest on the podcast at FOSS Patent

There is a lot of going on in German patent law at the moment. Florian Müller, author of the blog FOSS-Patents, discusses four exciting topics in his expert panel:

The reformed injunctive relief with the proportionality test, the new six-month time limit for preliminary opinions of the Federal Patent Court on nullity actions, preliminary injunctions in light of the Munich I District Court’s preliminary reference to the European Court of Justice and the German decisions in the case of Sisvel v. Haier I & II on SEPs – the latest developments on these topics were discussed in the podcast by experts Dr Dietrich Kamlah (partner at the law firm Taylor Wessing), Professor Thomas Cotter (University of Minnesota) and our partner Dr Christof Augenstein together with Florian Müller, author of FOSS Patents.
