IP Federation supports enhanced cooperation for the creation of unitary patent protection
01 February 2011
The IP Federation has issued a statement in support of the Commission’s proposal to invoke enhanced cooperation in order to move forward with the creation of a unitary patent in Europe, as a further option for obtaining patent protection, though with concerns about any extension of the Court of Justice’s role,
In particular, we are fully in support of the request for enhanced cooperation dated 8 December 2010 from Baroness Wilcox on behalf of the UK Government. We share concerns about any extension of the EU Court of Justice’s role in interpreting substantive patent law.
