On 20 July, the UK made its final preparation to withdraw from the Unified Patent Court project. A deposit of the withdrawal notification of ratification has been deposited with the Council Secretariat. […]
“The United Kingdom considers that its withdrawals shall take effect immediately and that it will be for the remaining participating states to decide the future of the Unified Patent Court system.” […]
The UPC Preparatory Committee will now convene to discuss the consequences of the UK withdrawal and agree a way forward. Once this has been settled, a further announcement will be made on its website.
