Proposed Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court
21 May 2012
The IP Federation has written to the Prime Minister pleading for more discussions to build on the progress that has been made so far towards a better patent system in Europe.
Unfortunately, if there are not significant changes to the proposals, they will clearly create a patent system in Europe which is substantially worse than we have today and particularly bad for European businesses. Thus we are urging the Government to consider urgently what options exist to ensure that changes are made quickly to make the proposals acceptable or, if that cannot be done, how best to ensure that more discussions take place.
