CEE: The judge school
Training judges from the newest member states in the European Union presents a particular challenge, with intellectual property rights in particular often let down by the court systems, as Michael Diedring explains
The appropriate enforcement of intellectual property rights remains one of the most significant challenges facing the new member states of the European Union (EU), 15 years after independence and two years after accession. While foreign investment and local economic development have increased at a tremendous pace, the court systems too often fail to adequately protect intellectual property rights, creating a disincentive for further investment and growth, as well as causing harm to local business and innovation in general.
