Dutch patent decision shakes up interpretation of ECJ’s Montex

A ruling relating to patents
issued in July by a Dutch court
has challenged the commonly
held belief that the European
Court of Justice’s (ECJ) decision
in <i>Montex</i> (Case C-281/05,
November 9 2006) means that
in-transit goods cannot be
seized under the EU Customs
Regulation (1383/2003)
