SIMONA LAVAGNINI IN BOLOGNA FOR THE AIPPI SEMINAR ON THE UNIFIED PATENT COURT
The name partner Ms. Simona Lavagnini, as President of the Formation Group of AIPPI Italia, will participate at the seminar “Analysis of the procedures of the Unified Patent Court” organized by the AIPPI Italian Group. The event will be held on June 29, 2016, in Bologna, within the evocative setting of Fornace Galotti “Battiferro”, where the Museum of Industrial Heritage is located.
The seminar will focus on an analysis of the various legislative innovations concerning the rise of a unified patent system, and will represent an occasion to specifically deal with issues such as territorial competence, first degree trials and the procedure related to the non-infringement declaration before the Unified Patent Court.
The introduction of a new “Unified Patent” and of the Unified Court is particularly topical at the moment and presents complexities and elements of uncertainty which have now come to the forefront, particularly in light of the recent British referendum, seeing as Great Britain, one of the States that most contributed to the birth of the new system and that should have hosted the division competent to deal with cases connected to chemistry, pharmaceuticals and biotechnologies, has decided to leave the European Union. What will happen to the Unified Court?
