Dr U Kilger with IP comment in specialist magazine "transkript" (4/2017)

In the magazine transkript (4/2017 page 18), BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT patent lawyer Dr. Ute Kilger contributes the article "Risk of self-collisions banished" In the article, she comments on the decision of the Grand Chamber of the European Patent Office (EPA) on the question of possible fatal self-collisions of a registration with its own partial registration, respectively priority registration. In particular, non-European registering parties have often been surprised by this rule where the subsequent registration contained more objects than the original registration. Dr Ute Kilger says here: "Initial experience has thankfully shown that previous registrations doomed to be rejected now have a good chance of being accepted before the EPA." Dr Kilger regularly comments for transkript. The magazine can be subscribed or downloaded hereundefined.
