Today's a bit of a busy day due to cats, but this article in French (automatically translated to English here) may be interesting to readers. It seems a French translation of a patent was rejected by a judge who said it served no purpose, while Rolls Royce insisted that it was necessary for it to be valid according to French law. The question is whether international patent law means that France cannot demand patents in French, and if so, from what year.
Now if only we had a French speaker that reads Page F30 who knows a thing or two about French and international law and could provide a bit of insight.
