The slides presented today by Prof. Dr. Lea Tochtermann of Mannheim University for 4iP Council's webinar series are now available in our Publications area. Prof. Tochtermann's paper on this topic may also be found in our Research section.

This webinar and paper present the legal bases for the current discussion on proportionality within TRIPS, European law as well as in selected European jurisdictions, focusing on Germany. They provide an outlook on whether the demand for legislative action is justified. An understanding of the legal background for the proportionality discussion within TRIPS, European law and selected European jurisdictions and a perspective on the proportionality discussion and its implications concerning the patent system as a whole is offered.
