AT Error of the Day

Found in the final report on the pharmaceutical sector inquiry:

§537. Patents are proprietary, exclusive rights and enforcing one’s patents against parties infringing them is a legitimate procedural dimension of the material right granted to the patent holder. It furthermore is part of the fundamental right to a fair hearing before court as manifested in Article 7 of the European Convention of Human Rights (ECMR)“.

PS: beware of acronyms. With this §, some may believe that the substantive scope of the ECMR has hugely expanded :).
