Grimme Landmaschinenfabrik Gmbh & Co. KG v Derek Scott [2010] EWCA Civ 1110

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  15 October 2010

 

This was the appeal in a mechanical patent claim. Mark Chacksfield's client was successful in appealing the first instance finding of partial invalidity, with the result the patent was held to be entirely valid and both directly and indirectly infringed. The appeal involved an detailed analysis of the indirect infringement provisions under the Act, and is now the leading case on the subject.
