49. Civil and Criminal Remedies  

L. Bently, B. Sherman, D. Gangjee, and P. Johnson

This chapter deals with civil and criminal remedies that are available where intellectual property rights are violated. It first considers the civil relief that is available before a trial takes place, namely, interim injunctions and prevention of imports. It then outlines the civil remedies that are available at full trial: final injunction, delivery up or destruction, the awarding of damages, the account of profits, and publicity orders. Finally, the chapter examines the various criminal remedies that intellectual property right holders may avail.

25. Remedies  

Justine Pila and Paul L.C. Torremans

This chapter deals with the enforcement of IP rights. Such enforcement takes place in search of redress and that redress is obtained in the form of remedies. The discussion focuses on remedies at a national level, i.e. the content of the applicable law determined by the court with competent jurisdiction, be it at a procedural or substantive level. It first looks at civil remedies. Civil proceedings brought by private parties are the norm in the enforcement of private rights, and thus take the lion's share of the enforcement and remedies effort in relation to IP rights, since the latter are very clearly private rights. The chapter then turns to criminal remedies. While criminal proceedings do not play an important role in the area of IP, some offences do exist and these types of proceedings are specifically concerned with cases of infringement that are seen as particularly serious from a public policy point of view. Examples include actions against copyright or trade mark pirates.
