G-Star sought injunctions, orders for delivery up, an inquiry as to damages or an account of profits, and other relief in respect of alleged infringement of the United Kingdom unregistered design rights in the design of a pair of contemporary jean trousers known as the ‘Arc Pant’. The Defendants contended that the rights in question entered the licence of right period under section 237 of the CDPA on 1 January 2014, such that no injunction restraining infringement is now available to G-Star on any view.
