The start of the Unified Patent Court is a very special time for patent enthusiasts in Europe. Johanna Flythström, a Helsinki-based partner of law firm Roschier has said this in a podcast interview on the occasion of the launch of the new UPC Case Law Tracker from Wolters Kluwer.
“There was a lot of anticipation building up before the launch of the UPC. After years and years of preparations and after all the delays, so there is really a lot of excitement in the air about how everything will be developing”, Flythstrom said.
She is also editor of the KLI publication Enforcement of Decisions of the Unified Patent Court.
In the podcast, the popularity of the system in different sectors is discussed, as well as the role of national IP courts, the German dominance at the UPC and the question when the first fundamental UPC decisions can be expected.
The podcast is available here.
The UPC Case Law Tracker is available on Kluwer IP Law and brings summarized and annotated UPC decisions and orders of the newly launched UPC. More information on the UPC Case Law Tracker can be accessed here.
