How and When to Prepare for the Arrival of the Unitary Patent
J A Kemp and One Nucleus will host a seminar exploring the opportunities and threats arising from the introduction of the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court.
If you are holding or applying for patents granted by the European Patent Office (EPO), you should ensure that you are well-informed about a major change to European patent law which is expected to come into being late in 2022 or in early 2023. The anticipated introduction of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent (UP) is expected to present opportunities and challenges regarding costs, territorial scope of protection, litigation speed and legal certainty across a part of Europe.
The introduction of the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court will affect all holders of existing European patents. It will also affect applicants for European patents that have not yet been granted.
