Summary:
This is an appeal by Symbian Limited ("Symbian") against the decision of the Comptroller General of Patents (dated 30 July 2007) refusing UK Patent Application No. GB 0325145.1 on the ground that the invention is excluded from patentability under s. 1(2) of the Patents Act 1977 ("the 1977 Act"). The Hearing Officer (Mrs S.E. Chalmers) confirmed the objection to patentability raised by the examiner which was that each of the claims related to a program for a computer and could not be saved by amendment.
