The EPO has
published a new booklet “National measures accompanying the implementation of
the Unitary Patent”. It provides a concise overview of the most important
national measures accompanying the implementation of the Unitary Patent in the
participating Member States having ratified the Agreement on a Unified Patent
Court. It is modelled on the EPO’s
successful online publication “National law relating to the EPC”, allowing
the relevant information to be easily retrieved country by country.

The Unitary
Patent and the Unified Patent Court are the building blocks which will
supplement and strengthen the existing centralised European patent granting
system. The new system will enter into force in spring next year and will offer
users of the patent system a cost-effective option for patent protection and
dispute settlement across Europe
