Law Commission publishes report on groundless threats

15 April 2014

In July 2013, we responded to the Law Commission’s consultation on reform of the law of “groundless threats” (the regime whereby certain parties threatened unjustifiably with a claim for infringement of a relevant IP right can bring proceedings to remedy the damage caused to their business by the threat).

The Law Commission has today (15 April 2014) published its report, and we are delighted to say that they have adopted a number of our proposals.

A copy of a summary of the Law Commission’s conclusions can be found here.
