Keynote speech: Impact of the new system to Asian/ Non-EU patent owners and Practitioners by Nicka Kirstejn, CEO Zacco Denmark A/S
There are many issues surrounding the new system, including the issue on territorial scope, the opt-out / opt-in issue, and the issue on costs involved which we at this stage only can speculate about. There are also a number of practical implications and considerations with regard to the co-existence between bundle and unitary patent. Whether or not the unitary patent court will shorten the proceedings, and how will the new system affect non-EU patent owners and practitioners will be discussed.
Nicka Kirstejn and Ako Yasuhara will be present at APAA from October 19 - 22. Please get in touch if you want to set up a meeting.
