Thats very good to know. But....
If that happens, then the individual states will come under tremendous
pressure from the US State Department, IBM, Nokia, etc etc to "harmonise".
Given that the UK PTO is the driving force for this change, if it doesn't
happen on an EU level, they'll be screwing up my dayjob anyway.
But if some large economies stay out of the mess, hopefully all out patent
crackdown can be avoided. I'm not feeling hopeful though.
