  • Brexit: The Impact on Your International Patent Filing Strategy Brexit: The Impact on Your International Patent Filing Strategy James Nurton Oct 18 2016 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Join RWS inovia and Managing IP Magazine for a complimentary webinar as we discuss Brexit and implications for the Unitary Patent (UP), the Unitary Patent Court (UPC) and other important patent related issues.

    The UP was established with the intent of providing a single European patent covering 26 nations. With the recent vote for Brexit, there is uncertainty as to when and how the UP will come into force. If it does, it may not include the UK, one of the largest economies in Europe.
    How will this affect your patent portfolio? Join us for the discussion!

    The webinar will be moderated by James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP and will feature Reinhard Ottway, CEO of RWS Group, Gary Smith, former Director of the PCT at WIPO, and Justin Simpson, Founder of inovia as they discuss the following topics:

    Following Brexit what are the implications for the UK, Europe, and beyond?
    How will this affect your filing and enforcement strategies?
    How will this impact the cost of receiving patent protection?
