Ask Patents is a question and answer site for people interested in improving and participating in the patent system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

A friend of mine says you can avoid infringing on a patent merely by not being aware of it in EU, and that for this reason organisations have policies against posting links to patent in mailing lists etc.

I couldn't find any source that touches on this claim. Is there any truth in it?
