Principles of the Law

Intellectual Property

The Principles of Intellectual Property "concern private-international-law matters that are specific to intellectual property and to the coordination of transnational intellectual property disputes. The Principles do not reiterate general rules on judicial or legislative competence, nor do they directly address general concerns regarding fair process. Thus, in most instances, they leave to the forum general issues of private international and procedural law, such as those concerning standing, characterization, the method of proving foreign law, and appellate process." Introductory Note to Intellectual Property: Principles Governing Jurisdiction, Choice of Law, and Judgments in Transnational Disputes, at 9 (2008).
