More on Unitary Patent Costs

In a previous post I commented on the appropriate level for renewal fees for the unitary patent by comparing the lifetime renewal cost per million population with costs in UK, France and Germany.

The following graph plots renewal cost per million head of population for:-

  • the potential member states;
  • the figures presented in Commission working papers in 2008 as indicative ranges of cost for the unitary patent;
  • the USA.

Still not cheap is it?
