VIRTUAL PROGRAM – The Unified Patent Court: Initial Cases

Topic: Unified Patent Court: Initial Cases The Unified Patent Court (UPC) entered into force on June 1, 2023 in the European Union. Hundreds of cases have been filed there, already. In a few cases, the Court has issued preliminary injunction decisions that have been favorable for patent owners. This presentation will review the initial cases, including trends in the divisions being used, the parties accessing the court, and the substantive decisions made so far. The presentation will also consider the structure and incentives of the court in comparison to U.S. tribunals and will consider more generally how the launch of the UPC aims to transform the global patent litigation market. The presentation will also consider the expected impact of the Court on due diligence exercises in transactions and valuations.
