Additionally, the lack of accountability of the EPO is still an issue to the point that the creation of a democratically-accountable central place for issuing EU patents, revoking EU patents and litigating infringement would be welcomed by patent attorneys across the EU. [...] This surprises me somewhat, since the unaccountability of the EPO has been exploited quite effectively by advocates of extended patentability, but maybe most patent attorneys don't really care about increasing the scope of what can be patented, or maybe they care more about only settling such matters once in a single place. If so, they need to employ more credible spokespeople who actually represent the interests of the majority of their profession's members.
