Swedish parliament considering unitary patent bill

According to the Swedish patent and registration office, Swedish parliament are considering a bill to adopt the unitary patent system, including the unified patent court.  According to  Rachel Bateman of D Young & Co, the bill should also approve the regional court that Sweden is to form together with Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia (but without Denmark).


  1. The Swedish PTO website only says that the two patent bills are sent to the Parliament for approval. Please could you confirm again that the Swedish parliament has approved these bills?

    1. Thanks for the correction. I've made the blog correspondingly less optimistic.
