SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) see benefit from UK Patents Bill:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK Patents Bill was passed by parliament on July 14, at the third reading. It incorporates a clause (amending section 106 of the Patents Act 1977) that aims to "make a small additional improvement to the framework for enforcement of patent rights" and an amendment which seek to address the concerns particularly of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The changes "aim to help SMEs in appropriate circumstances where they face litigation in the courts", taking into account the need for the framework to be "accessible to an SME patent holder, but which is also fair to a party against whom enforcement action may be taken, [which] may be another SME".
