epi Litigation Committee Meeting in Munich, 7th – 8th April 2016

Jonathan White will attend the upcoming epi Litigation Committee Meeting being held in Munich from 7th to 8th April 2016.

The meeting will be attended by professional representatives drawn from across Europe and a number of important topics will be discussed, including the proposed Trade Secrets Directive.

Jonathan will also update the Committee on Ireland’s progress with ratifying the Unified Patent Court Agreement (UPCA) which, due to Ireland’s Constitution, will require a referendum before ratification may proceed.  As Ireland has indicated its intention to form a local division of the Unified Patent Court (UPC), it is hoped that the referendum will be held as soon as possible so that Ireland will have legislation in place to ratify when the UPCA commences, although current indications are that it will be 2017 or even 2018 before the referendum will take place.
