The first special edition of the CIPA Journal. The chosen theme is the Unified Patent Court (UPC). Once the UPC Agreement comes into force, it will arguably represent the biggest change to patent law in recent years.
The journal addresses a broad range of topics, from the history of the creation of the UPC (by Mr Justice Richard Arnold), behind the scenes of the UPC Taskforce (by Janis Makarewich-Hall), financial implications of the unitary patent (by Jim Boff), to practical questions including representation rights in front of the UPC (by Vicki Salmon). The Journal includes many more articles on a variety of subject matter from basic facts about the new Court to technical issues.
The journal will be a helpful guide for anyone interested in the UPC and wishing to be up to date to the preparation ahead of ratification.
