epi files a further amicus curiae brief in case G1/21 - ViCo oral proceedings

April 29, 2021

Following its filing of a preliminary brief on 12 April 2021, which addressed the composition of the panel of the Enlarged Board of Appeal dealing with the reference under case G 1/21, the epi has filed on 27 April 2021 a substantive brief dealing with the referred question itself.

The question referred to the Enlarged Board of Appeal is the following:

"Is the conduct of oral proceedings in the form of a videoconference compatible with the right to oral proceedings as enshrined in Article 116(1) EPC if not all of the parties to the proceedings have given their consent to the conduct of oral proceedings in the form of a videoconference?"

All epi amicus curiae briefs can be found on the Position Papers page of the epi website.
