Summary:
Only last week the Czech deputy prime minister was saying: "The key to innovation at times of crisis is incentivisation. Lack of IPR can be fatal to SMEs, who are the main drivers of our economy and who, according to many studies, outperform larger firms in terms of technological importance of their innovations." For this reason, he continued, the Czech presidency of the EU is "deeply committed" to finding solutions to the current Community patent and single jurisdiction impasses. It truly is a funny old world; especially in Europe.
