claim against the Polish energy concern

10 July, 2017

Our team has successfully represented co-authors of a patent before the Court of Appeal of Lithuania in a dispute involving the co-authors‘ claim against the Polish energy concern on the remuneration for the economic effect, which the concern received during the period of 1996-2010 by using the patent.

The case at hand was remanded to the Court of Appeal of Lithuania to be reheard after the adoption of the 2016-12-02 ruling by the Supreme Court of Lithuania by which the co-authors were inter alia awarded the royalties and interest for the period of 1996-2000. Based on the findings of the court of cassation, the Court of Appeal of Lithuania concluded that the limitation period in regard to the co-authors‘ right to royalties for the period of 2000-2004 and interest had not expired, thus awarding the co-authors the remaining claimed sums owed by the concern.
