Bosnia: more patents to infringe, but ...

The European Commission’s Enlargement Package for 2010 includes a progress report on Bosnia and Herzegovina's IP rights. The number of patent applications has increased and the average time needed to process a patent application has decreased from five to two years [this must be good news for patent litigators; since there are more patents that can be infringed, revoked etc, the litigators now have far more patents to practise litigating with].  However, the Commission has concluded that coordination among enforcement bodies at various levels remains inadequate.
