Patent Drawing - Jurisdictions - Europe

Europe

Under the European Patent Convention, Article 78(1) EPC provides that a European patent application shall contain any drawings referred to in the description or the claims. Drawings are therefore optional. Rule 46 EPC specifies the form in which the drawings must be executed.

The European search report is drawn up in respect of a European patent application on the basis of the claims, with due regard to the description and any drawings. In addition, the extent of the protection conferred by a European patent or a European patent application is determined by the claims, with the description and drawings being used to interpret the claims.

Famous quotes containing the word europe:

    riding flatcars to Fresno,
    Across the whole country
    Steep towns, flat towns, even New York,
    And oceans and Europe & libraries & galleries
    And the factories they make rubbers in
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)

    Can we never extract the tapeworm of Europe from the brain of our countrymen?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All the terrors of the French Republic, which held Austria in awe, were unable to command her diplomacy. But Napoleon sent to Vienna M. de Narbonne, one of the old noblesse, with the morals, manners, and name of that interest, saying, that it was indispensable to send to the old aristocracy of Europe men of the same connection, which, in fact, constitutes a sort of free- masonry. M. de Narbonne, in less than a fortnight, penetrated all the secrets of the imperial cabinet.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
