European Patent Reform Proposals

05 April 2012

Following the IPO’s European Patent Reform Consultation meeting Monday 2 April, the IP Federation has sent a letter to senior ministers and cabinet members emphasising that location is not the only outstanding issue, and that there are still several more important substantive issues. Thus we have sent individual letters to: 
  • No. 10
  • Cabinet Office
  • George Osborne
  • Vince Cable
  • Ken Clarke
  • Norman Lamb
  • Rachael Bishop (UKREP)
The overarching objective of a European patent package must be to create a better system to bring lasting benefit to the UK and Europe, without undermining innovation, competition, inward investment, growth and jobs. Anything less should not be acceptable to the UK.
 
Details are available on request.
