In-house counsels, have your say about the Unified Patent Court and the Unitary Patent:

Managing Intellectual Property launched on 18th June a new survey for in-house counsel to assess the evolution of concerns and views about the UPC. This survey is part of a bigger initiative by Managing IP which already organised a first survey at the beginning of 2015 and which will organise a third one before the end of the year.

The first survey on the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court showed “broad support fo the new system, with the majority of respondents saying that they will use (the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court) and 46% saying that it will be good innovation for Europe”.

This second survey now comprises 6 short questions which are designed around two themes. First, it assesses “how the attitudes to the new system  have change” and what specific concerns about the UPC in-house counsels have. It then features questions about the Unitary Patent fees and the Unified Patent Court fees.
