2010 Sir Hugh Laddie Lecture

From National Patent Litigation to a European Patent Court - A Dream, A Wish or Soon Reality?
by Raimund Lutz
President of the German Patent Court
Chaired by Jan Brinkhof
on 15 June 2009, from 6 - 8pm
About the lecture:
For more than four decades experts and politicians have endeavored to create a European Patent Court. Such a European Patent Litigation System would be indispensable for a future Community Patent, or as it is now called, an EU-Patent. Some also believe it would be desirable to make this court responsible for the European Bundle Patents in order to unify the decisions made regarding the whole of these bundles.
President Lutz will discuss the status and future of this project, as well as possible alternatives to some of the details of the proposed solutions.
