The European patent package (EPP)
Establishing the Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is a milestone in the development of harmonized patent law in Europe. The now-established European Patent Package includes the Regulation (EU) No. 1257/2012 (“Unitary Patent Regulation”, UPR), the Council Regulation (EU) No. 1260/2012 („Unitary Patent Translation Regulation“, UPTR), and the Agreement on a Unified Patent Court (UPCA).
