Everything you need to know about German cease-and-desist letters

This book answers the most important questions for the recipient of a warning letter with cease-and-desist declaration:

  • Is the warning justified or perhaps abusive?
  • How do you defend yourself against unjustified warnings?
  • Do I have to submit the pre-formulated cease-and-desist declaration with contract penalty or can I amend the cease-and-desist declaration with penalty?
  • Do I have to pay the attorney fees and any additional patent attorney fees, and if so, how much?
  • What happens in the event of a breach of the cease-and-desist declaration?
  • And last but not least: is it possible to break away from a cease-and-desist declaration with criminal prosecution?
