CLIP is a group of scholars in the fields of intellectual property and private international law. It was established in 2004 and meets regularly to discuss issues of intellectual property, private international law and jurisdiction.
The Group’s goal is to draft a collection of principles for conflict of laws in intellectual property and to provide independent advice to European and national lawmakers. The Group is funded by the Max Planck Society.
The purpose of this document is to provide input for the report to be prepared by the Commission on the functioning in practice of the Brussels Regulation on Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters (the Regulation), and to submit proposals for amendment (see Art. 73 of the Regulation).
