Episode 5: You, me & the UPC

Access to documents and transparency


In our fifth episode of You, me & the UPC, our patent litigation experts, Naomi Hazenberg and Charlie French, cover the early cases regarding access to documents, transparency of UPC decision-making and the application of Rule 262.1(b) of the UPC Rules of Procedure.

Note: This episode was recorded before the Court of Appeal hearing in Ocado v AutoStore on 12 March, which was attended by Gregory Bacon. The Court of Appeal indicated at the hearing that it would issue its decision as soon as possible – we will report the outcome when the decision is available.
