The nature of IP law in Europe is changing rapidly. Increased harmonization of
EU law means you can no longer rely solely on national case law to guarantee
success in court.
But how do you ensure you have up-to-date and dependable access to the most
important cases in a language you may not be familiar with?
The answer is Kluwer IP Cases.
Kluwer IP Cases is a new online service reporting on significant patent
and copyright cases across Europe.
Consisting of an email newsletter and a fully searchable database, Kluwer
o Helps you identify cases from other jurisdictions that can support your
arguments before your own national court
o Provides an overview of the development of patent case law within individual
EU member states
Experts from 28 European states report on national cases of cross-border
interest. Summaries and case notes are delivered by email, ensuring you are
kept fully apprised of the latest case law.
The case law database is updated weekly. Fully searchable, by jurisdiction,
court, key word and much more, Kluwer IP Cases will quickly become an
essential part of your case research.
Authoritative case selection, expertly drafted summaries and annotations
To ensure that the database is relevant and of international interest,
Kluwer IP Cases includes the following:
o European Court of Justice – all decisions
o National courts of the EPC Member States: all Supreme Court decisions and a
selection of lower court decisions
o Key copyright cases from lower national courts (with a European or
cross-border dimension, or concerning a new technological development)
o A selection of EPO Board of Appeal decisions
As well as providing English-language summaries and case notes, each case is

Taxonomy and references to similar cases open up your search to more
