Understanding the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court

View Session Speakers

Unitary Patents will make it possible to get patent protection in up to 25 EU Member States by submitting a single request to the EPO, making the procedure simpler and more cost effective for applicants. The Unified Patent Court (UPC) is an international court set up by participating EU Member States to deal with the infringement and validity of both Unitary Patents and European patents, putting an end to costly parallel litigation and enhancing legal certainty. The Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court are the building blocks which will supplement and strengthen the existing centralized European patent granting system. They will offer users of the patent system a cost-effective option for patent protection and dispute settlement across Europe.

This panel will explore the rules associated with filing and obtain unitary patent protection, and litigating those patents before the unified patent court.
