It might be that we are witnessing development of a technology which is considered by some as important and groundbreaking as invention of internet itself. Nevertheless, with its merits blockchain carries along not a lesser number of worries, problems and questions that has to be dealt with for it to become a game changer in many aspects of our everyday interactions. One of major questions that is discussed today in EPO conference “Patenting Blockchain” is where does the technology stand with relation to IP protection and patenting in particular. It is yet to be seen whether patenting blockchain will not eventually be seen as an oxymoron.
