“Un passo più vicino”: The Italian government has approved the draft legislation for the ratification of the UPCA

Written by Louise AMAR 13 May 2016

Encouraging steps by participating member states towards the entry into force of the UPC Agreement

The Italian Council of Ministers has published a press release announcing that it had approved the draft law on the ratification of the Unified Patent Court Agreement that will “lead to the completion of Italy’s participation in the enhanced cooperation in the Unitary Patent package”.

The government declared that “this new phase in the development of the internal market will enable innovating Italian operators to benefit from a patent valid in the whole of the European Union, guaranteed by a supranational and specialized jurisdiction.”

The press release also highlights the fact that Italy will host a local division of the UPC, which the government hopes will be a project “that presents a significant potential for the improvement of the Italian capacity”.

Finally, it is interesting to note that the Italian government refers to the Italian local division of the UPC as a “signal from the (Italian) government to continue to protect and promote the Italian language”, while the issue of the promotion of the Italian language was the very reason Italy initially stopped taking part in the UPC.
