Summary:
In October 2006 Bowles and Lehne were among seven MEPs to put forward a motion for a resolution to the Parliament urging the European Commission to explore “all possible ways of improving the patent and patent litigation systems in the EU”.20 In March 2007, Bowles and Lehne travelled to the European Patent Conference at which Bowles was a speaker. On her blog, Bowles wrote: “The panel session goes well. I get the feeling that I am the most in tune with those attending. Several of the patent attorneys... come to me afterwards and say that I had done well and made things very clear. I am gratified for I can think of nothing worse than my former colleagues thinking I was doing a bad job!”
