From the Financial Times: "Delayed Europe patent court launch prolongs frustration"
D Young & Co Partner Rachel Bateman is quoted in today's edition of the Financial Times which discusses the EU's new intellectual property policy and the Unified Patent Court (UPC).
In the report Rachel notes the benefits of the EU's recently published Action Plan on Intellectual Property in its goal to "help companies, especially small and medium-sized companies (SMEs), to make the most of their inventions and creations and ensure they can benefit our economy and society".
Rachel comments on preparations for the Unified Patent Court and the impact that has had on clients' strategic plans. She highlights the potential cost savings and streamlined system promised by the unitary patent, noting "If you make the system simpler and more cost effective, you might see a greater uptake from SMEs."
