Super minister with execution issues: Lambrecht is running out of time on important projects

Shortly before the summer break, the CDU/CSU and SPD are aiming to finalise some unfinished coalition projects. One such project is reform of the German patent law.

IP2Innovate, which represents, among others, Adidas, BMW, Daimler, Deutsche Telekom and SAP, believes that effective modernization of German patent law is overdue, but possible. "Passing the law before the end of this legislative period is absolutely necessary to avert further damage to innovation, competitiveness and employment in Germany" -  Ludwig von Reiche, IP2I Board Member, told Handelsblatt.

Industriekoalition IP2Innovate fordert Patentrechtsreform zur Förderung von Innovation in Deutschland

Es kann dieser Rolle allerdings nur gerecht werden, wenn es die Entwicklung und das Inverkehrbringen komplexer, multifunktionaler Hightech-Produkte wie Autos, Telefone und medizinische Geräte unterstützt. Dies tut das deutsche Patentrecht derzeit nicht! Hauptmangel: Unterlassungsklagen werden automatisch erlassen, ohne alternative, geeignetere Rechtsmittel zu prüfen. Diese Situation schadet der deutschen Industrie.
