The High Court has granted an interim injunction with pan-EU effect on the basis of a registered Community design (RCD) relating to Philip Morris International’s (“PMI“) IQOS system, a flagship product in PMI’s range of smoke-free products that are less harmful alternatives to smoking. The interim injunction was granted against a Chinese manufacturer, Shenzhen Shunbao Technology Co. Ltd (“Shunbao“), which was attempting to launch a highly visually similar product onto the European market.
