Proposed amendment of the PatA: Do you like it?

As mentioned earlier on this Blog here, the draft bill of the new PatA has been published recently, in accordance with the ‘motion Hefti’.

Clearly, the interested circles had been involved early on in the discussion, see e.g. the Polynomics report of 2015 that recommended the introduction of examination on the merits for patents, alongside with a utility model. But participation in the underlying survey had been low at that time (3.8% return rate), and there have also been critical voices (see e.g. here, fulltext available here).

I’d really like to know, in the face of the draft bill with examination on the merits for patents, alongside with a utility model:

Do you support the gist of the draft bill, i.e. the 'motion Hefti'?

  • No (64%, 25 Votes)
  • Yes (36%, 14 Votes)

Total Voters: 39
