ALPHEN AAN DEN RIJN, Netherlands, April 26, 2010 - Kluwer Law International has launched a new Patent Blog,, designed to be the leading discussion forum
for patent attorneys and lawyers operating in Europe. Kluwer Law
International is part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a leading global
provider of information and software solutions in key legal and compliance
specialty areas (

"As we enter the second decade of the new millennium, the world of
international patents seems to be more active than ever before," said Brian
of Bristows, who, with Peter Burgers of Brinkhof, is a Managing
Editor of the blog. "Since a unitary European Union patent system, or a
European Patents Court, is at least five, if not ten or twenty years away,
the best that can be done is to obtain as clear a picture as possible of the
trans-national situation to provide complete and accurate advice. That's what
this blog aims to do."

In addition to the Managing Editors, distinguished contributors to the
blog include: Daniela Ampollini of Trevisan & Cuonzo, Korbinian Kopf of
Maiwald, Miquel Montana of Clifford Chance, Thomas Musmann of Rospatt Osten
Pross, Kristof Roox of Crowell & Moring, Pierre Veron of Veron & Associes and
Derk Visser of EIP.

"The Kluwer Patent Blog brings together some of the leading patents
experts from across Europe and, as a team, they provide a highly interesting
and informative platform for debate," said Oriana Marcolongo, Kluwer Law
International Product Manager. "The blog will instigate refreshing and
discerning analysis of all of crucial developments in the field of patents
and also serve as a platform to post the headnotes of Kluwer Patent Cases,"
Marcolongo added.
