Coffee-break questions

Bite-sized revision questions you can do in your coffee break.

Coffee-break questions are a series of e-mail questions and answers on aspects of European (EPC and PCT) patent law and practice. The questions are short and should only take between 5 and 15 minutes to answer.

The first e-mail contains a question. The following e-mail will give you the answer to the first question, including the legal basis, and set the next question. There are 50 questions altogether.
