The Unified Patent Court – It Has Finally Arrived

The UPC creates an enforcement and revocation framework for 17 countries in the EU and becomes operational on June 1, 2023. Its mechanisms include national courts, two Central Divisions (Munich, Paris), opt out provisions of EP patents, exclusive jurisdiction for EP-UP patents, parallel enforcement using national courts, loser pays, cost reimbursement, injunctions, damages, a unified trial on an 1 year expedited basis, and appeal to a second instance court in Luxembourg, This new court is arguably the biggest development in global IP protection and enforcement since the USA AIA in 2012. We will address this complex new IP world.
