The general rule is that court action must be brought within two (2) months from the day when the decision was sent from the Norwegian Board of Appeal for Industrial Property Rights (KFIR). KFIR must inform the Norwegian Industrial Property Office if a decision has been appealed to the court within three (3) months. If the decision is not appealed, the Norwegian Industrial Property Office database will be updated after the time limit expires, and the decision will be announced in the Norwegian Patent Gazette (Norsk patenttidende).
A decision by the Norwegian Industrial Property Office in which the request for administrative review is rejected or refused can be brought before the courts.
Actions brought before the courts based on a patent having been granted to a party other than the party entitled to the patent under Section 1 of the Patents Act must be brought within one (1) year after you have learnt that the patent has been granted.
