The Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court: A New Eastern District of Texas in Europe?

September 8, 2014 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

“The Unitary Patent and the European Patent Court will come into force in the next few months. This system will fully impact the strategies that companies put in place throughout the European Union in order to file patents and defend their IP rights in Europe. The organizational scheme of this new Patent Court and the “opt out” decisions to be taken for some patents or patent families will entail crucial strategic choices for companies.

Please join Palo Alto Area Bar Association and Reed Smith LLP as Marina Cousté presents the effect of the Unitary Patent and the European Patent Court on the future of IP in Europe. Marina Cousté is an IP Partner at Reed Smith LLP’s Paris office and specializes in intellectual property rights litigation. She has a reputation for practical experience in the field of high technology patents and trademarks, designs and models.

This event is hosted by Reed Smith’s Silicon Valley office. Lunch will be provided.”
