    The title of Vadym’s Ph.D. project is “Availability of injunctions in patent cases in the EU and the USA: justifications for denying of injunctive relief.” The research involves the comparative analysis of the factors affecting the award of injunctions in French, German, the UK and the US patent litigation.

    The survey addresses the rationales behind enforcement of patents via prohibitory orders and aims at establishing the theoretical framework which justifies the deviation from the exclusivity of patent rights.
