The UK has announced it will not apply the Agreement on a Unified Patent Court it ratified in 2018. Unified Patent Courts (in London, Paris and Munich) have exclusive competence over European patents and European patents with unitary effect. As they ultimately fall under judicial supervision of the CJEU, UK participation after Brexit had already been a shaky issue. This paper evaluates the options for the EU after the news of the UK government leaving the UPCA, and the effects on EU patent law.

The communication of cohesion policy in online media has been weak in recent years, despite the increased political priority placed on communi-cation by EU institutions. Media coverage is often shallow, with limited depth of understanding or analysis and there is little appreciation of the role of the EU or wider impact of the policy.
