Illumina Inc and another v TDL Genetics Ltd and others

Patent – Infringement. The claimant companies' application for an order that they were entitled to receive confidential information via a confidentiality club succeeded. The Patents Court held that there was no case for imposing the restrictions on three lawyers in the confidentiality club that the defendants sought, and that the defendants had unreasonably withheld their consent to a professor being admitted to the confidentiality club. He would be admitted to it without the added restriction proposed by the defendants.
