Albania (English), Croatia (English), Denmark (English), Finland (English), Hungary (English), Iceland (English), Netherlands (English), Norway (English), Sweden (English) Before 1 May 2008, as soon as a European patent has been granted, and more precisely within three months (or six months for Ireland) from the date of grant, the patent had to be translated into an official language of each country, in which the patent owner wanted patent protection. If the translation of the European patent was not submitted to the National Patent Office within the prescribed period, the patent was “considered null and void in that State from the outset”.  This situation remains in force in States Parties where the Convention has not yet entered into force. AND CONSIDERING that the parties agree that it is desirable to negotiate a Funcian debt agreement that gives Inuit defined rights and benefits in exchange for the surrender of claims, rights, title and interest based on Aboriginal title; Albania (Albanian), Croatia (Croatian), Denmark (Danish), Finland (Finnish), Hungary (Hungarian), Iceland (Island), Latvia (Latvian), Lithuania (Lithuanian), North Macedonia (Macedonian), Netherlands (Dutch), Norway (Norwegian), Slovenia (Slovenian), Sweden (Swedish) Provide a framework for the coexistence and partition of the country traditionally occupied by indigenous peoples. These agreements form the basis for continued cooperation and partnership as we move forward together to promote reconciliation. CONSIDERING that the Inuit, represented by the Tungavik Federation of Nunavut, invoke Aboriginal title to the settlement area of Nunavut, as described in particular in Article 3, on the basis of their traditional and current use and occupation of land countries, waters and ice, in accordance with their own practices and customs; The specific claims process provides a means to address past dysfunctions in the management of first nation lands and other assets and the execution of historic contracts. Resolving specific First Nation claims through negotiated transactions helps correct past mistakes and meet contractual obligations. Over the next two hundred years, the Crown signed treaties defining the respective rights of Indigenous peoples and European newcomers to use north American lands traditionally occupied by Indigenous peoples. Historic contracts signed after 1763 made available to the Crown vast tracts of land occupied by First Nations (transferring their Aboriginal title to the Crown) in exchange for reserve lands and other benefits. .
