We have been informed that the Committee on Legal Affairs (JURI) of the
European Parliament will hold an extraordinary meeting on Monday,
November 19th, 2012 at 19.00 with an exchange of views on the state of
play with regards to the unitary patent package. Discussions are likely
to focus on a compromise found with the Council about a potential
solution to the controversial removal of Articles 6 to 8 from the
regulation on the unitary patent. Although the content of such
compromise is not publicly disclosed, we have every reason to think that
it would still not comply with EU law. Moreover, such harsh and secrecy
raises serious doubts about any chance for the coming result to come up
to a sound solution.
