The Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court – an update for the Patent Information Users Group (PIUG)

The Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unified Patent Court (UPC) are now anticipated to go live on 1 June 2023, when the UPC Agreement (UPCA) is planned to enter into force. 

In this session, Appleyard Lees partner and patent attorney Julia Gwilt, and head of data and systems Lee-Ann Galway, discussed the key decisions European patent owners will need to make regarding their portfolios in the lead up to UP/UPC implementation, and demonstrated how patent applications can be tracked through the new systems.
