COX PaulIf a group of companies grant intellectual property licences between themselves, or one independent company licences another independent company to use its intellectual property rights, such rights should be in writing and recorded against the relevant registered right.

Failure to do so can have massive implications when seeking to recover legal costs in infringement actions in the UK. Paul Cox, Partner and head of our intellectual property team, highlights how this was illustrated in the recent case of L'Oreal SA v RN Ventures Limited [2018].

In the courts…recent case law developments

An employer should not be treated as knowing that an employee is disabled when medical evidence wrongly regards that employee as not disabled

The case of Donelien v Liberata UK involved a Claimant who suffered with various health complications which resulted in their attendance being very poor. An OH nurse report provided that, despite these complications, the Claimant's conditions fell short of being classified as a disability.  The Claimant was dismissed and claimed disability discrimination.
