The highlights of Unitary Patent Package 2017:


  • What is the difference in scope between a unitary patent and a regular EP patent? What is the situation with respect to prior use, exhaustion, indirect infringement, legal expectations etc
  • Offer to license. If you offer a license you get a 15% discount on renewals. I really need to know if I should you advise your clients to do this? What are they getting into if they make this offer? Can they still select clients etc

The new unitary patent package will have deep impact on your strategy of Patents in Europe!
