EU IP action against 5 Member States

The IPKat has come across a puzzling story from last week on Forbes. It reports that the European Commission has brought an action before the ECJ against France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal and Sweden following those countries' failure to implement 'a European directive on intellectual property rights in the internal market.'

If any readers have more information, the IPKat would be most grateful.


STOP PRESS: you can stop emailing now - it's the IP Enforcement Directive! Many thanks, to those of you who took the trouble to respond,
