For this reason it becomes important to ensure that UPC‘s decision-making reflects the double-function of the Court as an adjudicator of individual disputes and a policy maker. Because of its institutional design, the UPC will be biased towards technology based values. Therefore, there is a risk that non-technical values and interests will be either overlooked or underdeveloped in UPC decision-making which is likely to jeopardize public trust and legitimacy of its decisions. This paper analyses how these blind spots can be covered in patent litigation before the UPC within the current legislative framework.
