Publication and access to judgement

To consider

The court notifies the IPI (Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property) of the judgement free of charge. It does this ex officio and it is thus mandatory (Art. 66a CopA). The aim is to create an IPI information centre containing material relating to case law in intellectual property in particular. This will provide more readily accessible information on combating counterfeiting (cf. Message about the Amendment of the Patent Law and the Federal Decree on the Approval of the Patent Law Treaty and the Execution Ordinance of 23 November 2005, p. 119 – in French and German only).
