+++ The realization of the seminar is confirmed. +++
Although EPC 2000 upgraded "equivalents" to the dignity of the Protocol on Interpretation of Article 69 EPC, infringement by equivalence is a nightmare for patent attorneys, when providing an infringement opinion relating to several European jurisdictions.
This one day seminar is mainly addressed to experienced or intermediate level patent attorneys and aims at providing insight on the assessment of infringement by equivalence in some major European jurisdictions.
Our speakers will present relevant case law available in DE, FR, IT, BE and NL, both in the mechanical and chemical field. A practical case relating to a simple mechanical patent will then be submitted to the audience and infringement by equivalence will be discussed by our experienced speakers for a number of allegedly infringing products.
Extensive interaction with the audience is expected and welcome for this session.
The seminar is intended for patent attorneys, heads and members of patent and legal departments and attorneys at law.
