Uncertainty surrounding the European Unitary Patent continues as Germany’s constitutional court recently halted legislation to ratify it.

Upon receipt from an unknown source, Germany’s constitutional court halted legislation to ratify the European Unitary Patent (UP). The complaint alleged that the UP and Unified Patent Court (UPC) break German law. “The complaint has been taken seriously enough that the court has directed Germany’s federal president not to put forward legislation to make the new system law.”

As the story develops, more details will follow.
