Darts-IP released new landmark report on PAE activity in Europe (2007-17) providing evidence of targeted abuse of Europe’s patent legal system.
IP2Innovate is a new and rapidly growing coalition of small and large companies that create innovative products and services in Europe and collectively hold thousands of European patents, as well as European industry groups that represent 65 companies. IP2Innovate wants justice for innovators to help unleash innovation’s full potential.
IP2I comments on Council conclusions on IP packagePress Release
IP2I welcomes the recognition by the Council of the European Union in its Conclusions of 12 March 2018 that fair and effective judicial enforcement of IPR is a key lever to promote investment in innovation and growth. However, IP2I believes the Council should have also recognised the importance of providing safeguards against practices designed to abuse specific measures, procedures and remedies of Europe’s patent legal system.

Innovators must be protected to improve our quality of life
Innovators want justice. Europe needs:
A robust legal system that protects innovators against abuse
A balanced legal system that works in the public interest
A flexible legal system that rewards innovators and provides appropriate protection
