SPCs in Iceland

The SPC Blog has decided to take a quick look into SPCs in Iceland before the complete meltdown of the country into the Atlantic.

A glance at the website of the Icelandic Patent Office leaves us with the impresion that SPCs don't appear to be a burning issue there. The only information available relates to the Patent Act 17/1991 and Regulation 574/1991. Even the Fees page doesn't provide much information - but then again, the little the fees might bring in won't really help the nation from getting out of its hot spot.
