Turkish Patent Cancellation Lawsuits
Patent cancellation lawsuits, the most common type of patent litigation in Turkey, have several grounds. However, these cases are usually filed for reasons of prior usage or registration. Except for the reason of non-usage, the burden of proof is always on the plaintiff. The disclosure of evidence covering prior usage also becomes important before filing the lawsuit.
The partial or total invalidity of a registered IP right may be requested from the Civil IP Courts or other civil courts in the first instance where specialized courts have not yet been established. The competent court for these cases is that of the domicile of the defendant who is the owner of the registered IP right in question.
Turkish Patent Infringement Law Suits
Ata Patent’s Turkish IP trial lawyers provide patent litigation in Turkey. A registered patent owner may ask a Civil IP Court to make a judgment ordering the defendant to stop all infringing activities and make compensation for all damages.
The judgment of the IP Court may also include the confiscation and destruction of counterfeit products, along with machinery and other equipment used to produce the counterfeits. Interim injunctions may also be sought before or during civil infringement cases. The owner of the IP right may seek a preliminary ex parte injunction.
Evidence must be very strong to convince the judge to give such a decision without listening to the defendant. However, the courts mostly assign a special hearing date to give a decision on the interim injunction. It is almost impossible to receive an exparte injunction apart from in unquestionable patent infringement cases.
