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 problem of possible but fatal self-collisions in the case of a registration with a partial or 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.
