Summary:
On many places on the Internet one can find allegations that the entire project of establishing a EU Community Patent together with creating a Unified Patent Litigation System is merely a sinister plot to establish 'software patents' in Europe. This would mean that a wholesale new system of patent law is created merely as a substitute for a failed sectoral regulation, namely the drowned EU Draft Directive on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions. Such thinking is far from true. Patents on computer-implemented inventions affect only some branches of the Industry but the EU Community Patent plus Unified Patent Litigation System can become reality only if supported by the Industry in its entirety.
