Webinar: European Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court

Patent right: new law, new jurisdiction, new rules, are you ready?

Webinar organised and moderated by Thomas Cuche, partner at DTMV, on the introduction of the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court.

During this webinar, the following topics were discussed:

Unitary Patent: what is it? How does it differ from the European patent or the French patent? Is it relevant to my business (geographical scope, cost, examination conditions)?
Unitary Patent Court: what is this new court? What will be its remit and the scope of its decisions? Is it expensive to act or to defend oneself before this jurisdiction? And what if I do not want my company’s patents to fall under the jurisdiction of this new court?
