Germany: German Court Delays UPC Ratification

The German Constitutional Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) has delayed the ratification of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) Agreement.  The Process has been held up due to a constitutional complaint brought about by a private person, according to online magazine Legal Tribune Online.

 

Germany and the UK have not yet approved the deal, which requires 13 signatories including those two countries plus France before the UPC can be launched.
