The highlights of Unitary Patent Package:


  • You need to register your opt- out European Patents into a Sunrise register?
  • If you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket, you have to split your pending patent applications through divisionals, so you can have traditional European Patents and Unitary Patents for almost the same technology?
  • Your licenses should be reviewed? Because under the UPC Agreement exclusive licensees have the right to start infringement actions without consent from the patent owner, whereas non-exclusive licensees have not both, unless the license provides otherwise?

If you don’t take care of these measures, or one of the many others, it will cost you al lot of money and unnecessary risks!


Come to the third annual UPP conference and hear from top experts:

  • The latest news from the Preparatory Committee
  • The final version of the Rules of Procedure: Last important changes in the 18th Draft and when will it  be ready?
  • The impact of the litigation certificate for patent attorneys concerning the Unitary Patents
  • Transitional period & opt-out system: how does it work in practice?
  • Litigation (infringement/revocation) strategies at the UPC, forum shopping and relation with national proceedings and EPO opposition proceedings
  • The state of implementation of the Unitary Patent by EPO and the Member States regarding tasks, rules & renewal fees.


Take the opportunity to stay for Day 2 where you have the unique possibility to attend three in-depth workshops.

I Patent strategy workshop: What is the best strategy for your (clients) patents in Europe?
II Costs workshop
What will be the cost of an Unitary Patent (UP) in comparison with the classical European Patent (EP)?
III Courts procedure & Trial Workshop: How litigate before the Unified Patent Court? Exercises on fictive infringement cases with written, intermediate and oral proceedings in a short mock trial.
