Link up Mitaka Limited t/as the bigword v Language Empire Limited [2018] EWHC 2633 (IPEC) and [No.2] [2018] EWHC 2728 (IPEC)

Significant decisions relating to damages and costs in the IPEC. The first judgment shows the Court’s willingness to draw inferences and award damages where it has found that a Defendant has, in the conduct of its case, acted to obscure the nature and scale of its infringing conduct.  The second is a rare example of the IPEC disapplying the costs capping scheme aside in its entirety and awarding indemnity costs.
