EPO Oppositions: An Opportunity Missed by US

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


EPO Oppositions are an effective way to centrally revoke European patents at the European patent office usually at a substantially lower cost than US patent proceedings. In many cases, vulnerabilities in European patents are created during the drafting of US priority applications or during nationalization of PCT applications into Europe. In this session, we’ll explore effective attacks and defenses of European patents during oppositions.We’ll also review statistics regarding the effectiveness of oppositions.
