CIIR to conduct research for the European Union Intellectual Property Office

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO - https://euipo.europa.eu) has just awarded a contract to CIIR to conduct a research project on legislative measures related to online infringements of intellectual property rights. The project will kick-off in January and will be running for the next 11 months.

The main objectives of the study will be to:

  • to conduct a mapping of existing legislative frameworks which are used or can be used to combat and prevent online infringements of intellectual property rights;
  • to analyze these legal measures in order to identify the benefits and shortcomings in their implementation and application; and
  • to Identify and analyse possible future challenges due to new technologies and the proliferation of online facilities that can be used for illegal actions.

The following CIIR researchers will form the research team: Professor Thomas Riis, PostDoc Knud Wallberg, PostDoc PhD Ana Nordberg and PostDoc Sebastian Schwemer. The CIIR team will be assisted by professor, PhD Thomas Elholm from Syddansk Universitet and as well as by colleagues from other universities within the EU specialized within the area of civil and criminal enforcement measures. 

 The research shall result in a report that will eventually be published by the EUIPO as part of their series of reports and studies. (https://euipo.europa.eu/ohimportal/da/web/observatory/observatory-publications)
