Antrag auf Zulassung neuer Beweismittel im Beschwerdeverfahren nicht entschieden und Antrag für die Entscheidung relevant (bejaht)
'Relevant' in Regel 104 b) EPÜ bedeutet geeignet, zu einem anderen Ergebnis des Beschwerdeverfahrens zu führen
Ein Einwand nach Regel 106 EPÜ muss ausdrücklich (expressis verbis) erhoben werden; ein Antrag auf Zurückverweisung, auf Vertagung oder auf schriftliche Fortsetzung des Verfahrens gilt nicht als solcher Einwand
Die Ersetzung von Beschwerdekammermitgliedern, die an der aufgehobenen Entscheidung mitgewirkt haben, liegt im Ermessen der Großen Beschwerdekammer, die dieses Ermessen unter Berücksichtigung des Sachverhalts gerecht und verhältnismäßig ausübt
Die Gebühr für den Überprüfungsantrag ist zurückzuerstatten, wenn das Verfahren vor der Beschwerdekammer wiedereröffnet wird, auch wenn weitere, im Überprüfungsantrag vom Antragsteller formulierte Anträge (hier: Ersetzung von Beschwerdekammermitgliedern) keinen Erfolg haben und damit den Anträgen des Antragstellers insgesamt nur teilweise stattgegeben wird
