schestowitz__You cite three decisions of the BA quoting and claiming that the BA should look at the description when analysing a claim. Those decisions are very old and have been superseded by much more recent ones.May 04 00:03
schestowitz__But even in those days, there were decisions which held that a clarity deficiency in a claim wording cannot be rectified by the fact that the description could possibly help the reader to understand the technical subject-matter which the claim was intended to define. See in this respect decision T 49/99, Reasons, point 12, referring to decision T 1129/97, OJ EPO 2001, 273, Reasons, points 2.1.2 and 2.1.3. In other words Art 69 is notMay 04 00:03
-TechBytesBot/#techbytes-Could not resolve host:; Unknown error ( status 0 @ )May 04 00:03
schestowitz__to be used when assessing the content of the claim.May 04 00:03
schestowitz__In the catchword of T 56/04, it was held that an interpretation in terms of Art 69(1) cannot cure a lack of clarity, because compliance with the requirements of Art 84 cannot be achieved by applying Art 69(1) (cf. point 2.12 of the grounds for the decision).May 04 00:03
schestowitz__Other decisions of the same content: T 681/01, T 1279/04 and T 223/05May 04 00:03
schestowitz__The nub of all recent decisions is to specify that when a claimed feature is taken with its ordinary meaning there no need no need to invoke Art. 69(1). There are too many decisions going in this direction so that it is pointless to start quoting all of them.May 04 00:03
schestowitz__I will content myself to quote a very recent one T 30/17and the decisions cited therein: T 1018/02, T 0431/03, T 1404/05, T 1395/07 and T 0197/10.May 04 00:03
schestowitz__T 1450/05 held that Art 69 and its protocol were intended to assist a patent proprietor in contending for a broader interpretation of a claim than perhaps its wording warranted, not for cutting down the scope of a claim.May 04 00:03
schestowitz__How a claim is to be interpreted does not only have an effect when assessing the conformity of the claim with Art 84 but also with Art 123(2).May 04 00:03

schestowitz__Yes, Rianne was invited for the jab, but we decided to wait longer and her mother agrees. My brother and dad likewise.May 04 01:14

schestowitz__I don't know about the other vaccines, but this one I'd avoid. Minutes ago at work a colleague of mine told a similar story about her second AZ jab. She's only about 30 (Kim) and unable to work.May 04 01:14

schestowitz__I'm not against vaccination of course, but I'm in no hurry to get any of the current ones (there are many types, J&J sounded good at first but not anymore; my dad was glad he waited too, hearing about its side effects.... as that's the one he wanted to get).May 04 01:15
schestowitz__In the meantime we individually wash everything that gets in the house, food included, we wear masks etc. and don't socialise. I'm reading about and assessing the situation.May 04 01:15
schestowitz__BTW, Bill Gates is getting divorced. I have a lot to say about that, but it would distract from the real scandals.May 04 01:15
