Announcement on new EU-wide Patent

12-07-2012 15:04

On 29 June 2012, it was announced that there is to be a unified European Wide patent, valid in 25 member states and London will host the Court.

This is bound to be a positive development for UK businesses and will reduce the costs and time to be incurred in applying for a bundle of national patents in separate states as is the case now.
