On 16 April 2013, the Court of Justice of the EU gave its Judgment in Joined Cases C-274/11 (Spain v Council) and C-295/11 (Italy v Council) on the unitary patent. The Court has dismissed the actions brought by Spain and Italy against the Council’s decision authorising enhanced cooperation in the area of the single European patent. In the light of it being impossible for the Member States to agree on a common system for the whole EU within a reasonable period, the contested decision contributes to the process of European integration.
