The 13 digit EAN13 barcode is a superset of the 12 digit UPC barcode. If you put a 0 in front of a UPC barcode you obtain the EAN13 code.

Therefore I would prefer the EAN13 barcode. It is also implemented in the Point of Sale module of OpenERP which allows scanning of EAN13 barcodes out-of-the-box.
