Malta: a ratification ... and a problem?

Malta has now definitely ratified the Unified Patent Court Agreement, this event taking place yesterday, 9 December 2014. Malta's accession has been the subject of both speculation and confusion, as reported on earlier PatLit posts here, here, here and here.

Hat-tip to Darren Smyth (EIP) for spotting this item!
