“Mitteilungen der deutschen Patentanwälte” (7-8/2017) with contribution from Dr J. Krauss and Dr D. Kuttenkeuler.
The two BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT Patent Attorneys Dr Jan B. Krauss and Dr David Kuttenkeuler have contributed an article entitled “Current Developments in Biotechnology” to the German-language publication “Mitteilungen der deutschen Patentanwälte” (7-8/2017, page 306 et seq): Suspension of EPA proceedings which affect plants (or animals), which are essentially included in biological proceedings”.
In the artical, the authors point out that the grant clearly exceeds the authority of the President as Executive Organ of the European Patent Agreement (EPA) as well as the applicable legal situation. They also explain possibilities with which those affected can and should resist such a suspension. “Mitteilungen der deutschen Patentanwälte” can be subscribed here.
