The impending introduction of the Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is poised to make a major change in the European IP landscape. As momentum builds, companies may be able to take advantage of this new, streamlined method of European patent protection as early as the close of 2022. While this is an intriguing prospect, there are important issues to consider when preparing for this change. 

In this exclusive webinar, four European IP leaders will help clarify what companies need to know to prepare for the UP and UPC. 

Topics include:

  • What is the Unitary Patent and how will it change European patent protection?
  • What is the Unified Patent Court and what does this new structural format mean for companies seeking to protect innovations?
  • What should companies consider when making their filing and protection decisions in European jurisdictions into the future?
  • How can companies expect to be supported through this shift in the European IP landscape?
