What You Need to Know About the EU Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court
Tuesday, April 26, 2022 | 12:00-1:00PM ET

Starting later this year, patent owners will be able to elect a “European patent with unitary effect” (Unitary Patent or UP) for at least 17 EU states at grant of a European patent application, instead of national patents. Simultaneously, a Unified Patent Court (UPC) will be established for those EU states. The UPC will handle all litigation for Unitary Patents and will have parallel jurisdiction with national courts for litigation involving conventional European patents, unless the patent owner opts-out of the UPC.

This program will outline the UP and UPC, their potential advantages and disadvantages for different types of patents, and the points of consideration that owners of existing and new European patents and applications should consider now.
