I doubt it. The national courts will retain jurisdiction over national patents of which there are still plenty even though the European Patent Convention has been in force for many years. There are, after all, many national trade marks and design registrations even though Community trade marks have been available since 1996 and registered Community designs since 2002. It also has to be remembered that there is a big question mark over British membership of the EU and indeed the survival of the EU given the Eurosceptic mood of the citizens of many member states.
