The court found that the annexes to the expert’s report, filed in the framework of descriptive seizure proceedings, contained confidential information which was not relevant to assess the alleged infringement. It therefore ordered the expert to remove the annexes from the report and enjoined Novartis from using the information contained therein, subject to a civil penalty of EUR 1,000,000 for each violation of this order.

The full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
