Presentation on "The Strategic Use of Patents" at the EPO in Munich

On 20th October 2016, one of our patent attorneys, Pete Pollard, will give a presentation on The Strategic Use of Patents to 60-80 patent examiners from the European Patent Office (EPO) in Munich.
By covering what users of the EPC and PCT patent systems want to accomplish and how they view a granted patent, Pete will try to explain the "strange" behavior frequently witnessed by examiners in their dealings with applicants.
We are always happy to do this - engaging with examiners whenever possible improves mutual understanding, and promotes co-operation when handling future patent cases.


  1. Dear DeltaPatent team, will the presentation be available? It would be useful for explaining also to clients the "strange" attitude of their attorneys during proceedings, their "stubborn" requests of more information, why "words" in claims are relevant and so on. Some of them think that a patent is just a scrap of paper eventually regretting their misjudgement durung a trial.


    1. If you send me your e-mail address, I will contact you about it. Regards, Pete Pollard
