Session Overview

June 1 marks the most important global IP event in a decade when the UPC goes live and non-opted out EP patents can be challenged in revocation proceedings. The implications are enormous and complex. We will be diving into this topic with practical, immediate advice on how best to prepare for and navigate this new world of enforcement and freedom to operate between the Eurozone and the USA and other major markets around the world.
