  • Patinnova '01: Patents in the digital era - Patents serving entrepreneurship. Proceedings of the sixth European Congress on Patents, 15-17 October 2001, Cardiff, Wales


The Patinnova conference in 2001 covered two main themes: how patents can serve innovative companies and entrepreneurial activities, and the state-of-play as regards software patentability and other issues affecting intellectual property rights arising from the new digital economy. The proceedings contain the 21 papers presented at the conference, as well as a report of the round table discussion and the conference conclusions. The volume is published on behalf of the Enterprise DG of the European Commission, as a publication of the Innovation/SMEs Programme, part of the Fifth Research Framework Programme.
