The IPKat (right: in inscrutable mode) would like to ask his readers a couple of little questions. Here is a headnote from a recent EPO Board of Appeal decision: "The mere fact that subject-matter, which is excluded per se under Article 52(2) (c) EPC, is technically implemented cannot form the basis for inventive step. Inventive step can be based only on the particular manner of implementation of such subject-matter. To this end it is therefore necessary to ask how the per se excluded subject-matter is implemented."
