EPO ROUND UP: PART 2


The IPKat brings you more decisions from the EPO Boards of Appeal, kindly provided by Darren Smyth of Marks & Clerk. This time it's decisons of the Disciplinary Board of Appeal, posted on 25 May:

D0017/04

D decisions are from the Disciplinary Board of Appeal, and while they may relate to matters of professional misconduct, they usually relate to disputes over the European qualifying examination. Whilst perhaps not of interest to the wider legal community, they are closely studied by those wishing to take the European qualifying examination. Usually the decisions relate to cases where candidates challenge the marks awarded, and in these cases the appeals are almost always unsuccessful. This decision is about whether the candidate has the necessary qualifications to take the examination at all, and the decision is very critical of the practice of the Examination Secretariat. The decision appears to require that the Examination Secretariat change its practice to publish the lists of A qualifications (which under Article 2 of the Instructions concerning the qualifications required for enrolment for the European qualifying examination automatically entitle the applicant to sit the EQE) and B qualifications (which under Article 3 require a further three years experience in the patent or another appropriate field). We await with interest to see what changes the Examination Secretariat will make.



One form of discipline the EPO Boards of Appeal won't be handing out

D0015/05

In another criticism of the practice of the Examination Secretariat, the Board of Appeal apparently finds unacceptable the requirement that applications for enrolment for the EQE submitted by fax must be confirmed in hard copy within one month, and that failure to receive the confirmation copy results in the candidate’s application for enrolment not being allowed, without any advance notice of the non-receipt of the confirmation copy being sent to the applicant. Again, it would appear that the Examination Secretariat may need to change its practice in the light of this decision.

Hi,

I just across sites and found that your Blogs are amazing.

Do you know, your blog can generate extra income by posting Google Adsense? If you ever know about Adsense, you understand to get hundreds of dollar per month is not an easy way. One of the most important is to generate massive traffic.

Few days ago, I found a very useful software that will generate hundreds of back links to our website. Do you know why back links is so important to generate traffic?
Yes, you are right! back links will jump up your position in search engine! If your position gets higher from day to day, you'll find your traffic increase significantly as well.

That software is Blog Link Generator!

This software so powerful. You even do not need to create links directory in your site. Is that sound good? You put your link in other's website, but you never put a link back to their site?

Visit www.LinkInBlog.com now and I so confident you'll never sorry.

Is your IPKat effort related at all to Marshall Brain's IPKat? IP is a hot topic, and I'm just wondering if you are coordinating efforts.
