schestowitz[TR]Dear Mr Thomas, I must say that I find your response to be very disappointing. I have paid you the courtesy of responding to your question, at least by addressing the crucial legal and practical points underpinning that question. I am saddened that you do not feel able to respond in kind.<br /><br />At least I now have an idea of why we struggle to find any common ground. Except by dismissing or minimising them, you simply never deaApr 03 07:11
schestowitz[TR]l head-on with any facts that clash with your view on this matter. Also, it seems to me that you believe that there should be an extremely simple, &quot;one size fits all&quot; approach that can be applied to all cases. Whilst a desire for a simple solution is understandable, this does not mean that imposing such a solution is warranted (or justifiable).<br /><br />I would also add the following.<br /><br />Even if there is no adaptApr 03 07:11
schestowitz[TR]ation of the description, the results of prosecution history are captured in the wording of the claims (which, as previously discussed, is the most important factor for determining the scope of protection). Thus, even with no adaptation of the description, the national courts are presented with a <b>starting point</b> for determining the scope of protection that encapsulates all of the amendments made during prosecution. Where they Apr 03 07:11
schestowitz[TR]go from there is up to them, based upon the facts and evidence at hand.<br /><br />However, with a &quot;strict&quot; adaptation of the description, the national courts will be confronted with statements indicating that certain embodiments of the description are &quot;not the claimed invention&quot;. To my mind, it is difficult to envisage a national court interpreting such statements as being anything other than an effective disclaApr 03 07:11
schestowitz[TR]imer (of protection for the relevant embodiment). This means that, with regard to the relevant embodiments, the &quot;strict&quot; adaptation of the description presents the national court with a (forced) <b>conclusion</b> on the scope of protection. This leaves the national courts with no room for reaching their own conclusions on scope of protection (likely even by way of equivalence).<br /><br />The conclusion forced upon the natApr 03 07:11
schestowitz[TR]ional courts by the amendments to the description may well turn out to be correct. The EPO Examining Division may well have done a very thorough job and the applicant may well not have made any inadvertent errors when adapting the description. Indeed, the case may be so simple and straightforward as to make all of this very easy. The trouble is, this will not always be the case. Indeed, for cases in the technical area of my own expeApr 03 07:11
schestowitz[TR]rtise, I believe that it will very rarely be the case.Apr 03 07:11
