6.5.1-6 What is the time limit for filing a complaint?


The right to file a complaint is subject to a time limit of three months (Art. 31 SCC) beginning from the date the owner of the rights became aware of the infringement. If the alleged offender cannot be identified, the claimant can file a complaint against an anonymous party in order to adhere to the time limit. The injured party must therefore act promptly as soon as they become aware of the circumstances surrounding the infringement against them.
