 Subject: Milan as a possible seat for the European patent court

The EU is soon to take a decision on which Member State is to host the new European unified patent court of first instance.

The Commission has put forward a proposal for a regulation providing that the procedure for filing patents is to be conducted in three languages (English, French and German), in response to which the Italian and Spanish governments have brought an action before the Court of Justice.

Patents make a major contribution to a country’s economic development, and not being involved in the project would be a disadvantage to Italy, the only founding Member State not to host a major EU institution.

Would the Council not agree that, as this action will be withdrawn, Milan should be considered as a possible seat for the European patent court?
