IPR-Helpdesk, a joint venture of the University of Alicante in Spain and the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, has published a new, short briefing paper on European Patents. The paper addresses patentability, excluded matter, benefits of patent protection and revocation. This is just one of a number of interesting publications of the Helpdesk. Others address patent insurance and the costs of obtaining and maintaining patent protection.
