Can’t we wait until we are much closer to the unitary patents becoming available and the Unified Patent Court opening for business? In association with Eversheds, this timely London event will bring top legal experts to examine Unitary Patents and Unified Patent Court from a business perspective and to facilitate informal group discussions.
- The proposed reforms are the biggest upheaval in the patent system in a generation. They have significant implications for your long-term business planning, including your patent filing strategy, CAPEX decisions on the location of manufacturing or distribution facilities, and your key business contracts. This means your preparation needs to start now
- The Unified Patent Court could be up and running as soon as Q4 2016, allowing you to exclude infringing competitors from the majority of the EU market in a single court action. Or to revoke their patent protection for a key invention across the EU in a single action. Conversely, an incoming action poses a similar risk for your business
- Long-awaited key information about the costs (renewal fees, court fees and opt-out fees) is due to become available shortly before this session
Join us and hear from industry experts in the Wireless sector on how their businesses are preparing for these reforms, learn about a 5-step checklist your business can follow now to optimize its position, share your comments and ideas, and debate the new patenting landscape in the EU.
