The idea of a single process to apply for and enforce patents across the European Union appeared to receive a further boost on its continuing spiral down into the dustbin of history last week as a new report surfaced that seven EU countries oppose it.

“Seven EU countries and the European Parliament have told the European Court of Justice (ECJ) that the European Commission’s plans for a single patent court are unacceptable,” according to a report from EurActiv, an EU policy foundation.

According to EurActiv, those seven countries are: Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Spain.

The news comes on the heals of a leaked document last month from the European Court of Justice that opined that a centralized patent system is “incompatible” with the EU’s founding treaties.
