AIPLA CLE Webinar: Introduction to the UPC
February 9, 2023 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
Up to 90 CLE Minutes
June 1, 2023 is the current target date for the EU Unified Patent Court (UPC) to open and begin receiving cases. The UPC will have parallel territorial jurisdiction with national patent courts for all existing European Patents unless the patent owners “opt-out” of UPC jurisdiction. Learn all about revocation and infringement actions before the UPC as well as the respective course of these proceedings and the efficient management thereof. This webinar covers the intricacies of the different proceedings and provides strategies from a plaintiff’s and a defendant’s perspective. To put you in a position to select the jurisdiction that suits your needs best, similarities and differences between selected national proceedings and proceedings before the UPC will be pointed out.
Presented by: Francesca Giovannini, Osha Bergman Watanabe & Burton LLP & Thomas Becher, Hoffmann Eitle
