Brussels I Regulation: EU Parliament paves the way for the UPC

Written by Louise AMAR 24 April 2014

Last week, the European Parliament voted to complete the legal framework for the Unified Patent Court and the Unitary Patent (IP/13/750) (523 votes for, 98 against and 7 abstentions), updating EU rules on the jurisdiction of courts and recognition of judgments. In July 2013 the European Commission had in fact proposed an amendment to the Brussels I Regulation to clarify how its jurisdictional rules will work in the context of the Unified Patent Court, as well as how the rules of the Regulation should be applied in relations between the Member States, Parties to the Unified Patent Court Agreement and the Member States not party to the Agreement.

 

It is now for the Council of Ministers to formally adopt this text in order to become law. This is expected to happen at the Council meeting in June.
