NL – Ferring v. Reprise Biopharmaceutics

12 Mar 2014

Ferring B.V. v. Reprise Biopharmaceutics LLC et al. and Ferring B.V. v. Allergan Inc., District Court The Hague, The Netherlands, 12 March 2014, Case No. HA ZA 11-2167 and HA-ZA 11-2849

Ferring unsuccessfully tries to repossess various patents and applications. Nu full costs are awarded. According to the Court, a repossession based on Art. 61 EPC is not a situation in which a right holder invokes an intellectual property right. The action can also not be seen as an anticipation of a threat of enforcement by Reprise c.s.
