#BlogJWP – Specialized Intellectual Property Courts Are Here

10 March 2020

Four regional courts in Warsaw, Lublin, Gdańsk and Poznań and two courts of appeal in Poznań and Warsaw are to be designated as specialized courts to handle intellectual and industrial property cases.

The long-awaited changes will come into effect as of 1 July 2020.  The Act amending the Civil Procedure Code and some other acts was voted through in Sejm in February 2020. Owing to the amendments, we will have new courts to deal exclusively with matters related to industrial property rights, copyright and unfair competition as well as cases concerning the protection of personal rights as long as they involve the marketing-related use of a name or image, e.g. for advertising or promotional purposes. More details on our blog.
