Summary:
This notice provides further guidance on how patent examiners will assess the patentability of inventions with particular emphasis on the exclusion of computer programs as such. It follows the recent judgment of the Court of Appeal in the case of Symbian Ltd's Application [2008] EWCA Civ 1066 External Link ("Symbian"). It should be read with the Practice Notices dated 2 November 2006 and 7 February 2008 on patentable subject matter.
