Abstract

The assumption expressed in recent publications that the high (partial) invalidation rate of the Federal Patent Court suggests a poor patent granting practice in general is not true. This is mainly attributable to the failure to take into account patents which are involved in an infringement suit, but the validity of which is not challenged.

Keywords: Patents, patent quality, Invalidations, Bundespatentgericht, German Federal Patent Court
