European Union wants to know your opinion about industrial patents

Posted 17 Jan 2006 at 20:59 UTC by groom Share This

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on how future action in patent policy to create an EU-wide system of protection can best take account of stakeholders' needs.

While the Community Patent remains a priority, the Commission is also seeking views on what measures could be taken in the near future to improve the patent system in Europe. All interested stakeholders, including industry and individuals, are encouraged to reply. The closing date is 31 March 2006. source : EUROPA press release

I think a lot of us can be interested in looking to the proposition and downloading the PDF questionnaire (english) to complete. Other languages will be available in a few weeks. The response must be sent back before 31 March 2006. The feedback obtained will form the basis of a hearing, which the Commission intends to organise in Brussels on 13 June 2006.
