«20 ans d’interdiction provisoire de contrefaçon de brevet d’invention»

This article was written by Mr. Olivier Mandel and Mr. Pierre Véron and was published in the French prestigious legal review “LexisNexis Propriété Industrielle, February 2005”. This statistical study was written in connection with the 20th birthday of the French Act No. 84-500 of June 27, 1984 which gave rise to patent preliminary injunction proceedings. Rarely requested, preliminary injunction is even more rarely ordered: at the date of publication of this article, only 20 decisions (one per year, on average) have granted such an injunction since these proceedings became available.
