Letter of EPLIT to European Ministers on future of the UPC after the Brexit referendum

Last week ELIT sent a letter to  all European Ministers asking to make all efforts to bring the UP/UPC into operation as soon as possible. 

EPLIT is of the view that the creation of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is in the interests of inventors and businesses. Being able to enforce a patent covering a large number of countries before a single court reduces the costs of doing busi­ness and increases certainty for both claimants and defendants. This does not change if the UK leaves the EU. For these reasons, EPLIT would like to encourage the governments of the EU Member States to take the necessary steps to ratify the UPC Agreement and allow the UPC to become operational as soon as possi­ble.
