This guide is not only intended as a tool for advocacy. The passages chosen also illustrate some of the fundamental tenets of EPC law and practice. This book has a general applicability for all IP professionals, in addition to those with exposure to or a general interest in IP. We hope that this publication will be of use in your day-to-day practice.

Building on earlier editions of this book, the selected Board of Appeal decisions have been chosen on the basis of many years of experience in arguing cases before the EPO. In general, they represent some of the most useful and frequently cited decisions used by D Young & Co’s patent group during both our defence of and opposition to European patents. In this third edition we have included a number of additional cases and an updated section on the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office. We have also included a new section on oral proceedings being held by videoconference (ViCo).

The book was written and co-edited by members of our biotechnology, chemistry and pharmaceuticals patent group - Charles Harding, Antony Latham, Matthew Gallon and Rachel Bateman.
