Progress in Germany – UPC Constitutional Complaints Deemed Inadmissible

Publicly announced today, and in a unanimous order dated 23 June 2021, the Federal Constitutional Court has rejected the two applications for preliminary injunction made against the Act for ratifying the UPC Agreement in Germany. The constitutional complaints (2 BvR 2216/20 and 2 BvR 2217/20) were filed on 18 December 2020, the same day the Bundesrat (upper chamber of Germany’s parliament) had approved the UPC ratification bill.
