Paris will host the Court of First Instance seat for industrial operations, transports, textiles, paper, fixed constructions, physics and electricity.
The UPC Blog analyzes and discusses the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court and the consequences deriving from their application at National, European and International level.
