A recent decision of the High Court in England has highlighted the jurisdiction of the Court to grant injunctive relief against internet service providers requiring them to take measures to block, or at least impede, access by their customers to counterfeiter’s websites. It will be of keen interest to practitioners in the trademark sector but also has wider implications for online commerce.

English law governed debt reigns supreme

The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has declined to hear an appeal of the English Court of Appeal’s judgment in Re OSJC International Bank of Azerbaijan thus maintaining the 19th Century rule in Antony Gibbs & Sons v La Societe Industrielle et Commercial des Metaux  (the “Gibbs Rule”) that English law governed debt can only be discharged by the English Courts.
