Welcome to Carpmaels in Conversation: The podcast that brings you the latest thinking in intellectual property law.

In our latest episode, Partner and host Daniel Wise together with Associates Jonathon Woodward and Adam Ellwood discuss:

G 1/21 – A return to in-person hearings? The EPO’s Enlarged Board of Appeal rules on forcing parties to attend oral proceedings by videoconference during the Covid-19 pandemic, and concludes that it’s best to avoid this if possible.

G 2/21 – Referral to the Enlarged Board of Appeal on plausibility: Questions have been referred to the EPO’s Enlarged Board of Appeal on whether new (post-published) evidence can be used to support an inventive step at the EPO.
