Secondary Legislation Implementing the Unified Patent Court: a consultation and workshops

The UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) has organised a free webcast for this coming Wednesday 16 July at 4 pm for IP professionals on the following title "Consultation on Secondary Legislation Implementing the Unified Patent Court". 

You can get the details here. Follow-up workshops, run by the UKIPO, are being offered as follows:
  • London, 30 July at 2 pm, hosted by UKIPO
  • Edinburgh, 23 July at 2 pm, at the Law Society of Scotland
  • Newport, 28 July at 2 pm, again hosted by UKIPO
  • Manchester, 31 July at 2 pm, in the offices of Squire Patton Boggs LLP
Spaces are limited for the workshops, so please email to reserve your place.

This blogger is conscious of the fact that, being based in the UK, he usually spots what is going on there but often misses parallel developments in other jurisdictions. He therefore wonders whether, and to what extent, the UPC's secondary legislation is under review in other UPC states.

France has ratified UPC without any secondary legislation. This may be a legal problem...

According CIPA webcast on 16th July, no-one is aware of any significant activity on the part of other European jurisdictions. See their webcast at about 53:25.
