Event description

Description

European Patent Office
Computer Implemented Inventions
Procedural aspects at the European Patent Office
The EPO offers a wider range of services when treating international applications and has numerous agreements with other patent offices on recognition of the EPO's products. What are the benefits of those services for a US applicant?
Quality at the European Patent Office
The EPO has been consistently ranked no. 1 for quality among the major patent offices since 2010, consistently resulting in a user satisfaction rating of good or very good (above 91%1). What are the systems in place that contribute to the quality of the products delivered by the EPO and that support the EPO's commitment to high quality?
Amendments during the patent prosecution proceedings
To achieve legal certainty for the public, the European Patent Convention limits all amendments to the scope of the application as originally filed. The strict enforcement of this criterion by the EPO will be presented and explained.
Computer Implemented Inventions
Computer Implemented Inventions present several challenges for the applicant to avoid a rejection for being a computer program as such and for the patent offices to offer legal certainty and predictable results. In its leading role among the major patent offices, the EPO has developed an approach that ensures that these difficulties are overcome. Said approach also fits the difficulties presented by applications in the highly sought-after fields of Articial Intellingence and Cloud Computing.
