*Adaptive Spectrum and Signal Alignment v British Telecommunications plc

Patent – Infringement. The claimant company had brought a claim for infringement of its European Union patents, and the judge had held that claimant won on validity of both patents and on infringement on one of the defendant company's systems. In relation to consequential matters, the judge ruled that the claimant was entitled to a final injunction stayed until the later of the determination of the question of whether the defendant's modified system infringed the one of the EU patents, and any appeal. The judge declined to make an order for disclosure of fuller information against the defendant but left it open to the claimant to request it on the claimant's risk as to costs. He made an order that the defendant pay 40% of the claimant's costs, taking all matters of the instant case into account, and ordered an interim award of £430,000.
