Summary

Read the initial assessment issued by the Danish NCP concluding the specific instance - 11 March 2014


In February 2014, the Danish NCP received a request for review by an individual alleging that a Danish company had breached the science and technology provisions of the Guidelines in Denmark regarding patent rights. Specifically it was alleged that the company had applied for patent rights on an invention for which the individual believed he was the direct inventor. In addition it was alleged that the company had violated the provisions of the Danish Financial Statements Act. 

The NCP undertook an initial assessment of the specific instance but concluded that it did not merit further consideration because the alleged breaches were beyond the scope of the Guidelines and that it would be appropriate for the individual to take up the issue with a national court.
