The subject of the creation of the EU Patent System can be traced back to 1957 , with countless faltering on the way. There appears now to be real prospects for its introduction over the course of the next five years. Part of the new system will be the European and EU Patents Court (EEUPC) that already in the latest formulations resembles an unwieldy and complex compromise. This paper will critically analyse the proposals from the perspective of the aims and objectives for a successful ideal patent system, compare the proposals to those put forward under the European Patent Convention and will make recommendations for a more rational model.
