AVRUPA PATENT OFİSİ TEMYİZ SÜREÇLERİ
Any party which was adversely effected by a decision of a European Patent Office body, such as Examination or Opposition Divisions can file an appeal. In this case, the main legal discussion is more concentrated on the validity of the previous decision to the extent that whether submitted facts, evidence and arguments of the parties are appropriately taken into account in accordance with respective legal provisions.

In some cases, the patent attorney may try to avoid a potentailly unsuccessful appeal or may file an appeal only to be able to protect the legal defense line for the client as determined by the disputed decision of the first instance division.
