Unified Patent Court and the Unitary Patent
12 April 2018
The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and the Unitary Patent (UP) are two long-awaited developments in European patent law. In due course, the UPC should represent a jurisdiction of 25 member states of the European Union in which patents can be litigated efficiently and effectively. As well as UPs, the UPC will have jurisdiction over classical European Patents (unless opted out during the transitional period).
