Special emphasis has been given to Chapters VII--IX, dealing with the issues of protective scope, infringement proceeding (national and crossborder) and the exhaustion of patent rights. The latest Case Law of the Appeal Boards of the European Patent Office, the German Federal Supreme Court and the Federal Patent Court has been taken into account.;This book provides all the information necessary for the acquisition, the use and the enforcement of protective rights in the field of chemistry.
