ABSTRACT
The Competitiveness Council of Ministers met last month to discuss the outstanding issues concerning translation of patents in the proposed community patent regime. A year ago, the Council agreed in principle that reliance, in good faith, on an inaccurate translation of a patent would allow the alleged infringer to continue using the invention for up to four years. The European Commission is keen to promote the dissemination of technology and know-how in such a manner that competition and economic efficiency are improved.
