Successful Defence Against UKIPO Revocation Action

In previous litigation, the High Court awarded a final injunction against Airscience under Wallenius Water’s European patent covering apparatus for purifying fluids with ozone and UV light. In the UKIPO litigation, we successfully defended the patent against a revocation action from Airscience, allowing the earlier injunction to remain in force.

Novelty, inventive step and sufficiency were considered, along with estoppel and the admissibility of late-filed expert evidence, which was subsequently struck out for not meeting the requirement of being “strictly in reply”.
