U.S. and EPO Patent Prosecution Issues


In March, the European Patent Office's Enlarged Board of Appeal issued its G 2/21 decision on plausibility, providing guidance on the circumstances under which post-published evidence may be used when determining inventive step. Then, in May, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision on enablement in Amgen v. Sanofi, holding that patents that cover an entire class of processes, machines, manufactures, or compositions of matter using broad, functional language must enable a person skilled in the art to make and use the entire class.

  • The Supreme Court's decision in Amgen v. Sanofi
  • The EPO Enlarged Board of Appeal's plausibility case
  • Lessons these cases present for drafting and claiming
