Regulatory activities and infringement of pharmaceutical patents in Sweden – what is the connection?

The EU IP Rights Enforcement
Directive makes interlocutory
injunctive relief available where
infringement has been attempted or
where preparations for infringement
have been made. So, can the act of
seeking and obtaining marketing
authorisation or price approval for a
generic product qualify as an
attempt to infringe or prepare for
infringement?
