Two titans of the electronic industry, Apple and Samsung Electronics, are involved in an unprecedented legal battle across several jurisdictions. Apple has been trying to defend its patents and the design of its products from an alleged transgression by Samsung. The conflict can be described as a multijurisdictional dispute involving the same parties, over the same matter of intellectual property rights.This presentation will analyze how this type of dispute might be processed in the system of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) against a commercial Arbitration procedure. It will give an overview on how the UPC system is going to work and a comparison will be made with an arbitration procedure in terms of forum shopping, the applicable law and enforcement of the judgment/award.
