Representation before the European and Community Patent Court
The IP Federation is strongly supportive of the current version of Article 28 of the draft Agreement which will establish this Court. We believe that opening up representation to suitably certificated EPAs will not only be a progressive step in line with the general objective of improving the patent system in Europe but that specifically it will ensure wider choice and therefore better access to justice for all; especially for those high technology SMEs which will likely be the bedrock of the European Union’s future economic well-being.
