Unified Patent Court

The new Unified Patent Court will handle infringement or revocation for all participating EU member states at once. The Unified Patent Court will work alongside the existing national courts, which currently handle infringement and revocation only for their respective state.

The new Unitary Patent is an EP patent with unitary effect in all participating EU member states. This means infringement and revocation will be handled for all participating member states together at the Unified Patent Court.
