Brussels pushes ACTA aside on its agenda

The European Commission is requesting the Court of Justice of the European Communities to assess the disputed anti-piracy convention. It is said to be possible through ACTA to combat trademark and product piracy. Dr. Holger Gauss, Attorney-at-Law specializing in Industrial Property suggests that the industry stands a better chance of asserting its rights through ACTA, and will also find it easier to prosecute parties engaging in plagiarism beyond the German border.
