Continental Bakeries (Haust) B.V. v. [private person] (inventor) joined by Bolletje B.V. and Van der Meulen Hallum B.V., District Court Gelderland, 19 December 2016, Case no. ECLI:NL:RBGEL:2016:6856

A patent holder holds an exclusive right, also when giving exclusive licenses. Only in exceptional circumstances is the enforcing of an exclusive right a violation of competition law. In this case, concerning a rusk with a notch, it was not properly substantiated that an abuse of a dominant position occured.
