European Patent Office strike

On the 2nd of December, the European Patent Office employees took to the streets of Munich to express their extreme anxiety and disquiet at the state of governance of the office that, if things go according to plan, will soon be responsible for administering the unitary patent system that will provide patent protection across almost all of the European Union's Member States. More unrest and anxiety is building up regarding the running of the European Patent Office, its staff relations, finances and other issues.
