May Day for the London Agreement?

According to the president of the German federal association of patent attorneys (Bundesverband Deutscher Patentanwälte), France is currently in the process of depositing the instrument of ratification of the London Agreement. It is expected that this will be done today (29 January). By the IPKat's calculations, in accordance with Article 6 of the Agreement, it will then enter into force on 1 May 2008.

Thanks to Joff Wild's IAM blog for bringing this to the IPKat's attention.
