There goes Europe

It looks more and more likely that European countries will soon be foregoing the requirement for translating EPO patents into the language of each of the member states that you file in. That is, of course, sad news for all those European translators who earn their living from this activity, but ultimately it frees up funds for more aggressive and comprehensive IP activities, which in turn will lead to more research and more litigation, which should give those translators plenty to do.
