Summary:
Hopes that agreement might be reached on the proposed Community patent system this year have been dashed after EU ministers indicated the discussions would have to continue well into next year. Meeting as the Competitiveness Council on December 1st-2nd, ministers said some progress had been made on both the Community patent and the unified patent litigation system, but that a number of issues were still outstanding and would need to be examined in more depth, particularly the financial aspects and language arrangements.
