schestowitz   Yes, it can go worse! See T 618/21.<br /><br />It has to be specified that T 2432/19 is in direct opposition not only with T 758/20 and T 1158/20 but also to T 618/21 from the same chair and rapporteur. <br /><br /><br /><br />in this decisioMay 10 15:18
schestowitzn the board claimed that Art 15aRPBA20 is not in contradiction with G 1/21 and it reiterated its view that OP by ViCo are now equivalent to in-person OP,  thereby superbly ignoring Art 21 RPBBA20.  <br /><br />In this decision, the board further considered that OP by ViCo allows the parties to participate in the OP from their regular place of work. This avoids the need to travel to and from the BA’s premises.<br /><br />This also alloMay 10 15:18
schestowitzws the parties to spend the travel time that would otherwise be required more wisely. It also allows the parties to save the costs of travel and any necessary overnight accommodation. It can also prevent the means of transport used for the journey from causing environmental damage. Furthermore, unnecessary CO2 emissions can also be prevented.<br /><br />It is touching to see how the board is worried about the environment and the correctMay 10 15:18
schestowitz use of their time by the parties. I fail to see any reference to such considerations in G 1/21. T 618/21 is thus more than a mere dynamic interpretation of G 1/21 as it brings forward arguments not at all found in G 1/21. It is clear that the own convenience of the board plays a major role when deciding on OP by ViCo. May 10 15:18
