Last week, the Enlarged Board of Appeal finally published its long-awaited decision G1/19 about the patentability of computer simulations. Does it revolutionize the patentability of computer simulations and patents for software in general, as some had hoped? Or is it rather a controlled evolution of the EPO’s framework for computer-implemented inventions?

To find out, our patent attorney Bastian Best talked to a number of great experts in the field: Rudolf TeschemacherMartin WilmingMartin HuynhMartin Schweiger and Christof Karl. Many thanks to everyone for contributing!

You can read the whole decision G1/19 here.
