UK court extends ISP site blocking remedy to online trademark infringement

The UK High Court has held that trademark holders may be granted site-blocking injunctions against ISPs, despite the absence of an express provision to that effect in the legislation.

Site-blocking injunctions pursuant to s97A CDPA are now well established in relation to online copyright infringement.  The judgment in Cartier International and Others vs BSkyB and others could pave the way for a similar regime in respect of online trade mark infringement, reports Bird & Bird.
