European utility model; and, caveatsEdit
In utility model, the European Commission's "no agreement could be reached" might be expanded as "almost all EU countries thought this was a daft solution in search of a non-existent problem". The Gebrauchsmuster made sense under the old German patent law, with its high standard of inventive step. Countries like France and UK never saw the need for anything similar. (Urban legend has it that this was the subject of a Gebrauchsmuster – but I do not believe it unless I see it. Arthur Pedrick could have got that granted as a UK patent (unless an examiner found a novelty-destroying citation in e.g. The Beano or The Dandy); but I doubt he would ever have filed such an application.)
If you're FCIPA and have the reference books, the US-centric article patent caveat could do with some attention. A wholly different idea goes back in the UK to the year dot or thereabouts, and still exists. Narky Blert (talk) 19:32, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ed Thanks very much for your reply, Is it ok if we move this discussion to the article talk page? I feel like this conversation is useful to have on the article its self. I feel like this is the sort of discussion that could happen more than once if its not somewhere central. Best John Cummings (talk) 07:19, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
