UNIFIED PATENT LITIGATION SYSTEM – DEVELOPMENTS

The EU institutions are engaged in strenuous efforts to create a Unified EU Patent Litigation system, and within that, to secure an Agreement on the European and Community Patents Court and Draft Statute. To that end, the Commission has produced a working document setting out draft rules of procedure, limited at this stage to procedural rules before the Court of First Instance.

See: http://register.consilium.europa.eu/pdf/en/09/st11/st11813.en09.pdf The relevant Council working group is to meet repeatedly in the coming weeks, under the enthusiastic watch of the Swedish Council Presidency, to try to reach agreement.
