The building of an integrated patent system Europe: history and stakes
In this paper Alfredo Ilardi and Blandine Laperche retrace the history and evolution of an integrated patent system in Europe and explain this development through the collective and global character of the innovation process in a knowledge based economy. As the Genesis of innovation depends on international –and regional- links between several actors, integrated protection systems are also needed. The authors also analyze the difficulties of the harmonization process. Notably, in the case of the Community patent, technical difficulties and the political character of the protection of inventions are explained. To obtain better results in terms of innovation, it is necessary, according to the authors to link the reflection upon patent law harmonization with innovation policies and to transform innovation into a real European political priority.
