Final Draft Proposal for a European Patent Litigation System and Draft Statute of the European Patent Court (links)

March 19, 2004

Geneva, 18 Mar 2004

The working group on litigation and its subgroup has been working on a draft proposal for a European Patent Litigation Agreement (pdf 209 KB) and a statute (pdf 103 KB) for a European patent court for the past four years (for an overview, see the introduction, pdf 67 KB).

According to the working group, the draft is now sufficiently completed that it can be presented to a diplomatic conference.

However, because of the ongoing work being done regarding the Community patent, the group did not feel in a position to convene such a meeting. The Administrative Council of the European Patent Organisation is meeting December 8, 2004 and the working group intends to meet immediately afterwards to reevaluate the situation regarding a diplomatic conference.
