The Regulations on the European Patent with Unitary Effect and the Language Arrangements, and the proposed Agreement on a Unitary European Patent Court ? A summary of the basic provisions of the system, positions taken by the Swedish government, views taken by Swedish Industry, the view from Swedish Lawyers,
and the perspective of FICPI International. How will the future system operate? Will the “classic” European patent continue to exist? What about EP patents in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Norway and Turkey? What are the language arrangements? When will the
system be effective? What are the transitional provisions ? What will be the role of European patent attorneys in the EU states? What about provisional protection?
How will the new Patent Court be organized? Will there be a local or regional division in Sweden? Languages to be used in the Patent Court. Multinational composition of panels. Exclusive competence of the Patent Court.
Finances, Costs and Fees.

SECOND SESSION – CURRENT PRACTICE AT THE EPO

In 2009 and 2010 the EPO introduced a series of changes, many of which were intended to change the behaviour of applicants. For example, responding to the search opinion became mandatory and new time limits for filing divisional applications were introduced. Many epi members were apprehensive, and even afraid of the consequences of changes that were not fully understood.

How have these changes turned out and which consequences have they had in practice?

What was the EPO hoping to achieve with the changes, and have the goals been met?
