As the UPC further notes, the German deposit will also mark the start of the sunrise period during which it will be possible to opt out existing European patents from the jurisdiction of the Court.

It is crucial for patent owners and their counsels to know how to declare the opt-out for which patents in their portfolio. Our speakers will give you an overview of the opt-out process and delve into opt-out/opt-in strategic considerations.
