A case of copyright breach, for example, is challenging, as to come across the competitor or, more accurately, aggressor, you must conduct an intensive search. If you hopefully find the one, but regrettably from a different jurisdiction, you have to afford the lawyer’s fees. This scenario is irritating many of the IP protection seekers. IP laws are differing from one country to another unless the country complies to a certain IP convention or treaty. One more challenge is to meet courts’ or IP committees’ requirements to prove the breach and to convince them with the claimed similarity. A copyright breach case in Saudi, for instance, could exceed a period of two years.
This type of breach is connected to the cross-border challenge. With the increase of e-business and Internet usage, IP breaches and cases are increasing rapidly. However, the challenge is to chase the aggressors around the world and to determine the right jurisdiction to file a case. Choice of law and forum is a nightmare in such cases.
