Lithuania accedes to the London Agreement

On 22 January 2009, the Republic of Lithuania deposited its instrument of accession to the London Agreement, see OJ EPO 2001, 549. The Agreement entered into force for Lithuania as 15th contracting state on 1 May 2009.

Lithuania does not require proprietors of European patents to supply a translation of the patent specification, irrespective of the language in which the Office granted the patent. However, a translation of the claims into Lithuanian is required.

Questions with respect to the London Agreement may pop up in the DII exam and may be worth a few marks. Read more on the London Agreement here.
