Brexit and the UP & UPC
Following the Brexit vote, the UK Government, on 28 November 2016, confirmed it will proceed with preparations to ratify the Unified Patent Court. Preparations for UK ratification of the UPC Agreement will continue over the coming months.
This announcement raises a number of questions about the unitary patent and Unified Patent Court in the light of Brexit.
