Summary:
Alberto Barrionuevo, CEO of the small spanish software company OpenTIA and ex-president of the FFII, had submitted an amicus brief to the Enlarged Board of Appeal in spanish. The European Patent Office has notified him that they are refusing his letter because it was not written in one of the 3 official languages of the EPO. [...] Dear Sir, Any written statement filed to our proceedings should be in one of the official languages of the EPO = German, Enlish or French. [...] Such language discrimination cannot exist at the time we want to build a patent system for Europe.
