Intellectual Property Law


Peter Simm’s cases involving issues of intellectual property law are reported in two hardcover law reports, and are cited in two legal textbooks and a law journal.

A case where Simm drafted submissions of law for the winning Plaintiff, Unilux ,   involved substantive issues of intellectual property law — licensing and sublicensing; international scope; and exclusivity. This case was reported in both the Ontario Reports  and the Canadian Patent Reporter.

In a notable recent decision where Simm was co-counsel for the successful Moving Party (Plaintiff), TSI (No. 1),  Justice Ricchetti of the Ontario Superior Court found that Simm's client had established a strong prima facie  case of theft of confidential information (as well as other delicts). He granted the motion, brought on notice, for interlocutory injunctions and Anton Pillar orders against four individuals and two corporations.
