Public consultation on the Rules of Procedure for the Unified Patent Court

30 September 2013

The IP Federation has submitted a response to the public consultation on the Rules of Procedure for the Unified Patent Court closing 1 October 2013.

In our paper, as well as identifying specific rules which it requests be amended, the IP Federation identifies rule language where it has questions on the intended meaning of the rules. In these latter cases, we suggest that the Rules should be clarified so that the meaning is clear.

Comments on major issues are arranged by topic: a number of individual miscellaneous comments are also made.
