on the Unitary Patent realises his
entirely inadvertent omission
Apart from those ratification requirements, the Unitary Patent cannot become a reality until the current regulation on jurisdiction and enforcement of judgments across the EU, a.k.a. the Brussels I Regulation, is also amended -- and this might not be trivial, especially since not all 27 member states are on board.
For a more in-depth analysis of why the UPC Agreement was deemed to require the amendment of Brussels I, see the post here by Axel H. Horns on the KSNH Law Blog. Thanks to Gibus for his comment (and indeed thanks to all those who take time to comment on the IPKat's posts).
