IP Dispute Resolution More Affordable Now


On July 1, 2018, a specialist intellectual property (IP) list was introduced to the Federal Circuit Court system with the objective of providing efficient and cost effective dispute resolution for IP matters in a more consistent and timely manner. The initiative is intended to give litigants greater access to the courts with less risk and reduced costs.

Key points of the new IP list are:
- Court filing fees for initiating proceedings have been almost halved.
- IP matters will now be heard by a specialist judge with specific expertise in IP law.
- Matters are to be before the court within 3 weeks of proceedings being issued.
