Grimme Landmaschinenfabrik Gmbh & Co. KG v Derek Scott (T/A Scotts Potato Machinery) [2011] F.S.R. 7)

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  29 July 2010


This was the appeal in a mechanical patent claim. Grimme, for whom Mark was the sole advocate in the Court of Appeal, was successful in appealing the first instance finding of partial invalidity, with the result the patent was held to be entirely valid and both directly and indirectly infringed. The appeal involved an detailed analysis of the indirect infringement provisions under the Act, and is now the leading case on the subject.
