validity
Grant of a registered intellectual property right (IPR) does not mean it is valid. It may be subsequently challenged under the relevant legislation with a view to having it revoked - such a challenge is commonly in anticipation of, or as a counterclaim to, infringement proceedings. Similar principles apply in the case of registered designs and registered trade marks and service marks.
