Question for written answer  E-006227/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Ibán García Del Blanco (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Cross border enforcement of intellectual property rights

The EU has made significant strides in updating and harmonising intellectual property (IP) rights in the internal market, but no similar harmonisation effort has been made in terms of enforcement of these rights. To complete the internal market, it is essential and urgent to ensure that these rights are enforced in the same way across the EU.

Will the Commission propose a legislative initiative which would enable national enforcement authorities to apply measures that have a cross border effect on infringements of IP rights by digital services?

These could include, for example, expedited procedures to use evidence and recognise judgements from courts in other EU Member States.
