UPC Case Management - bulk opt-out
The latest version of the UPC case management testing software includes a “bulk opt-out request”.
From our look around the system, there is a basket capability for opting-out multiple patents, but these still need to be added one by one.
The information on the latest release says that v2 of the APIs will support bulk opt-out requests and will be available late April – so watch this space.
With the bulk opt out feature, and confirmation of no offical fee for opting out, it may appear that opting out of the UPC is getting easier, but the administration and management of opting out shouldn't be under-estimated.
