On a dramatic night (29–30 June 2012) the EU Heads of State agreed, taking up the demand of Prime Minister David Cameron, to ask for the deletion of Articles 6–8 from the proposed EU Patent Regulation. The EU Council followed that suggestion. Subsequently, the EU Parliament acknowledged that the Trilog Result of December 2011 had been cancelled by the Council and sent the issue back to its Legal Committee. That Committee has been striving to arrive at a compromise which is legally and practically workable. It is worth taking a closer look at the controversies involved and the results achieved on November 19 and December 10, 2012.
