The contents of your online course
  • Latest news on the Unified Patent Court

  • Planning of costs and duration of proceedings
  • Special features of information and damages

The objectives of your online course
One must imagine Sisyphus happy, wrote French philosopher Albert Camus. Whether the European patent practitioners will be happy with the future Unitary Patent remains to be seen. The development of the European Patent Package sounds like the story of Sisyphus. Regardless, the first Unitary Patents will be granted in the near future. Thus, on one hand, it will be necessary to attack infringers of Unitary Patents and of European bundle patents - subject to an opt-out - before the new Unified Patent Court. On the other hand, it will also be necessary to defend against Unitary Patents and European bundle patents of competitors with revocation proceedings. While the application procedure remains largely unchanged, knowledge of the infringement and revocation proceedings before the Unified Patent Court is thus a prerequisite for the inclusion of the new Unitary Patent in your patent strategy, your FTO and patent enforcement considerations. In the course of the seminar, you will receive a thorough overview of the proceedings before the Unified Patent Court and learn what your options are as a plaintiff or defendant.
Who should attend

Do you work in a corporate legal, IP or patent department or as a patent attorney or attorney-at-law in private practice and would like to be prepared for the Unified Patent Court? Then this is the right course for you. Knowledge of patent law is a prerequisite. Heads and members of R&D departments with experience in the patent system will also benefit from this course.
