The European Patent Office Board of Appeals released their final decision regarding Target Technology’s EPO patent number EP 1 505 584 B1. The hearing before the Technical Board of Appeals concluded that the patent can be maintained with some minor amendments.
Date: 07 February 2017
Target Technology Company’s European patents are all still valid and fully enforceable in Europe including patent EP 1 505 584 B1, the one most recently reviewed by the European Patent Office (EPO).
The EPO’s decision will be appealed and we strongly believe that their decision will be reversed under the second review. Until that second review this patent is in full force and effect per EPO rules.
A recent publication stating that there is no patent protection for silver alloys in Europe is wrong and misleading information designed to entice customers to infringe for the publishers benefit. We encourage you to seek counsel’s input before accepting these dangerous contentions.
Target Technology Company plans to defend its patent positions in all territories where the company has granted patents. This includes TTC’s other granted European patents. It should be noted that there is effectively NO change in patent status caused by this recent decision as it is not a final decision. In the meantime infringement should not be encouraged by anyone.
