This conference will offer an update on the political and legal developments regarding introduction of the Unitary Patent in the EU. The unitary patent package was endorsed by the European Parliament and the Council in December 2012 and the agreement on the Unified Patent Court (UPC), which is expected to be ratified by Member Sates this year, ought to come into force by 2014. It is therefore crucial for legal practitioners and patent attorneys to prepare themselves for the unitary system of protection for patents in the EU.
Patent attorneys, lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel and other practitioners of law dealing with patent law and industrial property law.
