ADDING LINKS IS TEMPORARILY BLOCKED - if you want to add a link, just put a space in it so that it doesn't work. The admin will then fix the link for you very quickly. This will be fixed as soon as I have the new spam blocking system in place.
In Europe, the main groupings for international or "European" patent law are:
- European Union (EU)
- The EU has 27 member states, as of December 2009.
Some countries that are geographically in Europe are not members of either of these groupings. Russia is one example.
