Carku v NOCO  EWHC 2034 (Pat):
Edward represented Carku, successfully arguing that NOCO’s use of the Amazon IP complaints procedure gave rise to unjustified threats of patent infringement.
In the judgment handed down, Meade J held that NOCO’s use of the Amazon IP complaints system amounted to unjustified threats of patent infringement proceedings because the patent was both invalid and not infringed. This was the first High Court trial to address whether use of this online IP complaints procedure can give rise to threats.
Edward is hopeful it will encourage other parties that have been negatively impacted by Amazon or eBay infringement complaints to seek appropriate relief.
