One Day Seminar: Advanced Drafting Techniques for Successful EPO Patent Applications (London, United Kingdom - November 4, 2020) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 14, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 14, 2019--

The “Advanced Drafting Techniques for Successful EPO Patent Applications” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The purpose of the seminar is to identify the problems of added subject-matter and sufficiency of disclosure, and show how they can be easily avoided by careful drafting.

Many patent applications and patents are lost before the EPO, either before Opposition Divisions or before Appeal due to incorrect original drafting, and added subject matter is a recurrent problem. Learn advanced drafting techniques for successful EPO patent applications.

Many patent applications and patents are lost before the EPO Boards of Appeal due to incorrect original drafting. Added subject matter is a recurrent problem: Amendments made during grant procedure, to take account or new prior art, amount to added subject-matter, often fatal in opposition procedure before the EPO, and national courts.

Sufficiency of disclosure can also be a problem, as if initial disclosure is insufficient, amending it can amount to adding subject-matter.
