The theme of this year's lecture is as follows:
"For more than four decades experts and politicians have endeavored to create a European Patent Court. Such a European Patent Litigation System would be indispensable for a future Community Patent, or as it is now called, an EU-Patent. Some also believe it would be desirable to make this court responsible for the European Bundle Patents in order to unify the decisions made regarding the whole of these bundles.President of the Court since 2006, Herr Lutz was formerly Head of the Subdivision for Trade and Business Law at the Federal Ministry of Justice, Berlin, where his primary focus was on intellectual property.
President Lutz will discuss the status and future of this project, as well as possible alternatives to some of the details of the proposed solutions".
