Event Detail

Transactional issues arising from the UP & UPC

9am, noon and 5pm, 28 March 2017


Transactional issues arising from the UP & UPC

This is a short, practical webinar session identifying the issues relevant to businesses when dealing with their European patents and unitary patents.

We will consider contractual provisions addressing these dealings, including control over designating a new patent as a unitary patent, whether to opt a European patent out of the jurisdiction of the Unified Patent Court, control over 'pinning' (the inability to withdraw the opt-out because of national proceedings), the position regarding any supplementary protection certificates, and co-ownership.

This webinar will be relevant to all those managing patent portfolios which will be affected by the advent of the unitary patent and Unified Patent Court, particularly those involved in or advising on the assignment or licensing of patents.


UP & UPC specialists Antony Craggs and Richard Willoughby will present this webinar. Antony and Richard are both partner solicitors at D Young & Co LLP.
