In Denmark a referendum on the "Unified Patent Court" is coming up (May 
25th). OKFN-DK has decided not to engage in the political debate with 
recommendations on how to vote. However patent rights are important in 
regards to many aspects of open knowledge. So my question is: what is 
your opinion on the establishment of a European Patent Court and a 
"unitary patent" (pros and cons)?

On a side note we're planing a workshop on European patent data in end 
of April. We're going to look at data from EPO and possible WIPO. If 
anyone here on the list has any experience in looking into these data 
we'd be glad to hear from you.

Best, Niels Erik
