This blog is not legal advice. Although I may express my personal opinions and sometimes draw some conclusions, these conclusions cannot replace professional advice. If you are not a patent professional yourself, please do not draw legal conclusions from information found on this blog. If possible, you should seek professional help before acting in proceedings before the EPO.
Needless to say, the blog does not create any attorney-client relationship.
I am presently employed by Michelin, but the opinions expressed in my posts are purely personal and are not necessarily those of my employer.
I do not necessarily endorse the opinions expressed in the comments. I may (and indeed often do) accept comments I do not agree with. However, please note that I will not accept comments containing personal attacks directed against whosoever (except perhaps myself). Such comments will be deleted.
Comments posted on the blog are not treated as confidential; therefore, do not post sensitive information.
Board decisions given in German or French are translated by myself. These translations are in no way endorsed by the EPO. Before relying on the wording of a translated decision, please have the translation checked. See also my post dedicated to this question.
