Testers wanted - UPC prototype e-filing/case management test system goes live

October 2014

A prototype e-filing / case management system for the UPC is now available to test at http://prototype.unified-patent-court.org/selfservice/web/index.html 

It aims to get feedback from real users across Europe and beyond.  Users can try out filing an infringement claim in the UPC.

Feedback from testers will be used over October and November 2014 to continue configuration in an iterative way and to then evaluate lessons to inform the procurement process.

It will be interesting to try it out.  A slowing down of ratifications (four during Spring 2014) doesn't seem to be preventing progress of the infrastructure needed for the new Court.
