UK: New small claims track for businesses with IP disputes

UK courts have a "small claims track", where relatively small civil claims can be filed. Filing is simple (fill in a form, no need for a lawyer) and cheap. On 1st October, it was announced that IP disputes can now be handled through the small claims track:

Quote:
Claims allocated to the small claims track will be subject to damages restrictions of £5,000 or less to ensure they are proportionate to what is at stake.

I agree it's good news. And thank you, Russell, for posting it.

But just to be clear: You said that 'UK courts have a "small claims track"'. That's correct. But the current announcement only applies to England & Wales. Other parts of the UK also have small claims procedures, but these are not affected by this announcement, unfortunately.

Thanks for the clarification, I hadn't realised it only applied to England & Wales.

These are civil cases, so the standard of proof required is that the person is guilty "on the balance of probabilities", just as with any other civil case.
