The book highlights the various options that have been explored in the past decades for the creation of a centralised and specialised European patent court. Chapters retrace the most developed proposals for the establishment of a patent court, assess their impact on judicial coherence and identify potential weaknesses and room for improvement. The UPC Agreement has a central role in this analysis as it is the most advanced proposal and is currently in its implementation phase.
Providing a comparative analysis of the US and Japanese patent systems and identifying the potential for improvements, this timely book will be a valuable resource for scholars, students and policymakers in the fields of IP law, governance and political science.
