In general, the UK profession has, in parts, sought to address this by going to the next legally comfortable market they could find - litigation. This is comfortable because it is legal. However, we have taken a different tack. The future is in the commercial sector where patents matter on a continuing basis. The way we are positioning ourselves is, we believe, unique in Europe.
