What is it about?

With both chambers of the German parliament having passed the bill for the new German Patent Law, the present webinar gives an overview of the most important changes that the new law will bring about once formal ratification is completed and discusses the expected implications for German patent litigation: 

  • When will the new law enter into force? Will it apply retroactively to cases already pending?
  • Will the inclusion of proportionality considerations in the “automatic injunction” have a practical impact? Will injunctions be granted less frequently?
  • How will the increased synchronization of invalidity and infringement proceedings play out? Will the Federal Patent Court issue fully-fledged preliminary opinions within six months of service of the complaint, as foreseen by the new law?
  • What will be the impact of the enhanced protection of trade secrets during patent infringement proceedings?

Register for this webinar now for answers to these questions and to find out if your company’s approach to German patent litigation needs to be adapted.
