Summary:
Business groups have welcomed the Commission's initiative. Leo Baumann, of DigitalEurope, which represents the digital electronics industry, said: “We appreciate the significant efforts made by the Commission.” He cautioned that some proposals on the litigation system had not been considered. One of the concerns of industry is that the national courts may lack experience and expertise given that 95% of all patents in the EU are awarded in Germany, France, the UK, the Netherlands and Italy. Industry would prefer a more restrictive language regime instead of allowing every national court to use the local language.
