A compendium of the important decisions of the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office.European Patent Decisions
contains a digest of substantially all the more important decisions of the European Patent Office. The relevant facts and questions of law in each decision are summarised clearly and concisely.
The decisions are digested neutrally and many of them are followed by a separate section noting issues arising from the decision and a comments section containing the author's opinions on the legal effect of the decision.
* Three narrative sections at the beginning of the work provide the user with general advice on important points of European patent law.
In 2018 the EPD will continue to report on the most relevant cases released by the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office.
