Summary of Facts and Submissions

I. The applicant (appellant), which at the time was I-LOR, LLC, appealed against the decision of the Examining Division refusing European patent application No. 01930476.5.

II. With effect from 19 March 2014, the application was transferred to Google Inc., which thereby obtained the status of appellant.

III. In the course of oral proceedings held on 5 November 2015, the appellant declared that it withdrew the application. The Chairman then pronounced the Board's decision.

Reasons for the Decision

1. The withdrawal of the application has deprived the present appeal of its purpose.

2. Consequently, the appeal proceedings are to be terminated. The termination may be pronounced by means of a formal decision (see decision T 477/05 of 22 February 2007, reasons 6).


For these reasons it is decided that:

The appeal proceedings are terminated.
