UP&UPC – German Constitutional Complaint – Decision in early 2020

An interview of Managing Intellectual Property with Prof. Dr. Huber, Judge Rapporteur at the German Constitutional Court has been published recently. Judge Huber is responsible for the Constitutional Complaint against the UPC. He explained that a decision can be expected during early 2020 (first quarter of 2020).

(Please follow for interview)

However, even if the complaint is dismissed, it is not clear when and how the German government will take up further actions to complete the ratification in view of the ongoing BREXIT saga. Again, we need patience to see which news we will receive from the German Constitutional Court while waiting in parallel for the outcome of the UK's parliamentary elections on December 12, 2019 as well as the outcome of the new BREXIT date January 31, 2020.

In any case, we will keep you posted so keep an eye on news at K&W.
