The European Directive on the Patenting of Biotechnological Inventions is currently being challenged before the European Court of Justice (ECJ). The focus of the challenge relates to a claim on embryonic stem cells. On January 12, the ECJ will conduct its oral procedure. The European Parliament has already adopted a very clear resolution on its view of how to interpret the Directive.
MEPs and the Plaintiff of the current legal procedure will discuss the issue in more detail.
