Extended deadline for comments in UPC case

The German constitutional court has extended the deadline for comments in the constitutional case against the Unified Patent Court Agreement from 31 October to 31 December. We should therefore not expect to have an opinion on the case from the Court until the new year.

In the meantime, the UPC legislation has been moving through the Scottish legislative process but there does not seem to have been any movement from the UK government to progress the legislation towards ratification for the UK as a whole.
