-TechBytesBot/ | Not a toothless prohibition: Even implicit step of treatment by surgery makes method claim unpatentable under the EPC - The IPKatOct 25 09:24
schestowitz"Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzThis decision is perfectly justified and does not go over G 1/07. The decision leading to G 1/07 might have been injection of contrast agent into the heart, which undoubtedly represents a surgical step.Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzI would however like to remind you of the Catchword 2c in G 1/07.Oct 25 09:24
schestowitz2c. Whether or not the wording of the claim can be amended so as to omit the surgical step without offending against the EPC must be assessed on the basis of the overall circumstances of the individual case under consideration.Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzFirst question: would you like the method carried according to EP to be carried out by the dental’s practice cleaning lady?Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzNow let’s look at the methodOct 25 09:24
schestowitzThe first step of the method is to rebuild provisionally the missing tooth substance so as to get an impression of a human dentition in which missing tooth substance is replaced, cf. [021] or [026]. Who else but a dental surgeon can rebuild the missing tooth substance?Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzThis provisionally missing tooth substance is then removed and the teeth prepared for receiving the final tooth replacement, cf. [027]. Here again, who else but a dental surgeon can prepare the teeth before the second impression. Then a second impression is taken, and the final tooth replacement is then prepared from both impressions.Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzIn the light of Catchword 2c of G 1/07, the method cannot be carried out without surgical steps, although those steps are not mentioned in the claim, so that the revocation is fully justified.Oct 25 09:24
schestowitzThe patent should never have been granted as the positive IPER even mentioned that before the first imprint the teeth have to be restored. It is surprising that this did not lead to a warning that at least when entering the regional phase before the EPO, an objection under Art 53,c) is likely to be raised. As the IPER was positive, the grant was immediate. At least the chairman of the ED should have reacted.Oct 25 09:24
