Last week the Preparatory Committee of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) issued a revised roadmap.
The report outlines the significant activities to date in preparing for the UPC as part of the broader Patent Package.
These preparations are running in parallel with the work being done on the Unitary Patent.
One of the takeaways from this report is that there is still a whole lot more work that needs to be done. While there is an aspirational deadline of the end of 2015 it is not likely that the package will be operational before 2017.
