No particular term of law applies in Norwegian to what in English would be an "injunction", and Norwegian law therefore has no particular rules relating to injunctions as such. However, as regards Article 44 of the TRIPS Agreement, it should be noted that a right holder, or anyone else with a legal interest therein, may request the judicial authorities to establish the existence or non-existence of a legal right (JPCCA Section 54). The court may in such cases proclaim that a party does not have the right to commit an act, if committing it would constitute an infringement of an intellectual property right. The court may, e.g, proclaim that a party does not have the right to enter into the channels of commerce imported goods that involve the infringement of an intellectual property right.
Furthermore, it should in this context be noted that infringements of IPRs may be criminally prosecuted (cf the answers infra to questions 20 to 25). It may therefore also be said to follow ipso jure that a party is under an obligation to desist from infringement of IPRs.
Damages in respect of an infringement of an intellectual property right may be awarded pursuant to Section 38 of the Trade Marks Act, Section 58 of the Patents Act, Section 36 of the Designs Act, Section 6 of the Layout-Designs Act, Section 23 of the Plant Breeder's Right Act and Section 55 of the Copyright Act. Such damages include payment of a reasonable compensation for the (unlawful) use of the protected right, as well as for other losses that the infringement has caused the right holder.
A party to civil proceedings may be granted compensation for expenses incurred during the proceedings, including appropriate attorney's fees, pursuant to Chapter 13 of the JPCCA. The general rule is that a party who loses a case before the court, shall be ordered to compensate the other party's expenses in full (Section 172). If a case is partly won and partly lost, the main rule is that the parties have to cover their own expenses (Section 174).
Provisions on the destruction or other disposal of infringing goods are found in Section 40 of the Trade Marks Act, Section 59 of the Patents Act, Section 37 of the Designs Act, Section 8 of the Layout-Designs Act and Section 56 of the Copyright Act.
