A New Chapter for the Global Patent System

Two major global patent events will mark Fall 2022 and Spring 2023: In Europe, the Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent (UP) will have been in force for nearly a decade. In the U.S., the First-Inventor-to-File (FIFT) system will celebrate its tenth anniversary since it was launched on March 16, 2013.

Part 1 of the 2022 Global Innovation Law Summit will reflect on the origins of the UPC and UP and explore the pros and cons of the new European system in comparison with those of the U.S., Germany and the U.K.

Part 2 will review the past ten years since establishment of the FITF system and the roles of the PTAB in patent enforcement to examine the necessity of further reform of the U.S. patent system.
