Opportunities and strategic challenges with the new patent system

Published: 30 August 2022, 09:00 Updated: 5 September 2022, 11:28The unified patent system within the EU will soon become a reality – but there are still many uncertainties about how it will work in practice. – It is important to be prepared and to prepare your patent strategy for this shift already now, says Magnus Dahlman, partner and lawyer at Advokatbyrån Gulliksson. With the unified patent system, an applicant in a single procedure will obtain and maintain a European patent in 17 countries within the EU. At the same time, a unified patent court is established for disputes about European patents. This is a big change from the current situation, when the patent holder has to validate and maintain the patent in each country separately, with challenges around language and fees.The unified patent system means opportunities – but also risksWith the change comes major cost savings, less bureaucracy and increased legal certainty. At the same time, you can avoid the trouble of having disputes about a European patent heard by courts in different countries, with the risk of different outcomes in the individual case and varying jurisprudence. a patent can choose whether they want to be part of the future unified patent system or remain in the current one. And this creates an uncertainty that has to be managed. – A lot of advice is needed to create a strategy for the new unified patent system. It is important to end up right and really understand what choice you are facing. That must be done now, before the new system comes into force, says Magnus Dahlman.Advokatbyrån Gulliksson has extensive experience in intellectual property law Advokatbyrån Gulliksson is a full-service agency in intellectual property law.

Together, we protect, develop and commercialize the customer’s most important assets. Through our collaboration, we can find new strategies for how our clients should now manage their patent portfolio throughout the entire patent life cycle, he says.
