My friend Stephen Carter from Mewburn Ellis gave a 10-minute talk about the European Unitary Patent Package at the 10x Medical Device Conference in May 2016 – before the Brexit vote.
If you have a European patent, or aspirations to get a European patent or licenses, this is going to impact you.
Stephen explained, in Q1 2017 we should see a “single patent that gives you protection across the whole of the EU. We also expect a single Unified Patent Court with jurisdiction not only over this new European Unitary Patent but also over existing European patents that have already been granted.”
