Strong Patents as a Basis for Successful Patent Litigation
November 24, 2015
epi Seminar on the Occasion of the 79th Council Meeting in Cologne
On 13 November, the epi offered a seminar in Cologne in the margins of its 79th Council Meeting. The seminar was open to all epi members and was intended to facilitate an exchange between the Council members and the local patent community.
The invited speakers were Dr. Peter Kather (attorney at law), Dr. Dirk Schultz (“Patentanwalt” and European Patent Attorney and Dr. Tilmann Büttner (judge at “Landgericht Düsseldorf”). Their presentation included various issues involved in German patent proceedings, emphasising the need for strong patents. The highly interesting contributions resulted in a lively interaction between the speakers and the audience.
The success of this seminar confirms the benefit of this new tradition that started at the 78th Council meeting in Barcelona and will be set forth. The next opportunity will be at the meeting of Council next spring in Athens.
