No UPC opt out fee

The Preparatory Committee for the Unified Patent Court has announced the outcome of its last meeting on 24-25 February 2016.

It was agreed that there will be no opt-out fees for opting out of the UPC (or for withdrawing an opt-out and effectively opting back in).

A fee discount of 40% will be provided for SMEs.

It was also agreed that there would be a moveable ceiling on recoverable costs dependent upon the value of the proceedings.
