Summary:
At last some transparency has come into the quarrels over the question as to whether or not the proposals for creating a European and Community Patents Court (PC) having jurisdiction not only over EU Patents on the territory of the EU but also with regard to non-EU countries being signatory to the European Patent Convention (EPC) are compatible with the Treaties of the European Union. [...] This TFEU is a monster. I do commiserate with the Judges who are confronted with the inescapable duty to make sense of all that. [...] Obviously the points made by the opponents of the PC are least partially seen even by the supporters. For me as a humble Patent Attorney it appears to be entirely open as to whether or not the Court might accept the golden argumentative bridges [...] in order to make the overall construct looking compatible with the EU Treaties.
