OOO Abbott and another v Design & Display Limited and another, Intellectual Property Enterprise Court, UK, 22 November 2017
The UK Intellectual Property Enterprise Court considered issues arising relating to a determination of an account of profits following an earlier finding that Design & Display had infringed Abbott’s patent for slatted display panels. The Court agreed with the defendant’s position that they had in fact made a loss on the infringing business. The judgment contains some helpful guidance on the treatment of a business’s general overheads when determining an account of profits.
