As every year, the Commercial Courts of Barcelona (this year jointly with the European Union Trademark Court of Alicante), have issued a report that summarizes the main highlights of the proceedings that have taken place on the occasion of the Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC). They have been settled according to the Intellectual Property Fast Action Protocol MWC 2019 (available here).
The indisputable success of the Protocol is shown by the fact that the number of cases handled has gone up 42% (compared to MWC 2018) and all of the 50 proceedings have been processed and settled within 24 hours. The efficiency of this mechanism places the Spanish judicial system in a good position and provides legal certainty to all players involved in the MWC.
ABG IP has assisted our clients –directly at the Exhibit– in a high number of the proceedings included in the report, ensuring that their IP rights were protected in the world’s leading event for mobile technology.
