emergency word that heralds the onset of an immediate crisis. Four days after the First of May, we may well have one. 5 May is drawing closer, this being the date on which the fate of Spain's legal challenge to the European patent package is sealed in two Court of Justice of the European Union rulings (Cases C-146/13 and C-147/13). Meanwhile tension, speculation, excitement and expectations are all rising. What better time could there be than now to sit back and read the latest thoughts, always interesting, often uncomfortable, of the diligent Dr Ingve Björn Stjerna, Ingve's latest article, '“Unitary patent” and court system – “Cypriot compromise” compromised', can be accessed from his website in English and in German. This Kat adds only that, for anyone who is seriously interested in reading up and researching into the unitary patent and unified court system, Ingve's website contains an unparalleled resource: his articles, whether you agree with his conclusions or not, are carefully researched and impeccably footnoted.
