IP Experts LIVE is a webinar series by BARDEHLE PAGENBERG. Our experts will provide you with insights into selected aspects of German and European IP law with a focus on practical and strategic guidance. At the end of each seminar, there will be a Q & A session.

As part of our series on the upcoming Unified Patent Court and the Unitary Patent, this session will focus on the sunrise period that will likely start on January 1, 2023 and pave the way for the start of the new system on April 1, 2023.

Prof. Dr. Tilman Müller-Stoy and Dr. Georg Anetsberger will address the following aspects:

  • Measures of the EPO for early uptake: How to request a Unitary Patent already during the sunrise period?
  • What is better – the Unitary Patent or an EP bundle patent?
  • Opting-out already during the sunrise period: How does it work and what can go wrong?
  • New litigation and invalidation scenarios: Which aspects to consider when deciding for or against the new system?

Register for this webinar now to find answers. We look forward to meeting you there.
