EPO extends possibility of oral proceedings by videoconference to opposition proceedings

By Jerôme COLLIN, Partner, French & European Patent Attorney.
It has been possible to hold oral proceedings by videoconference at the EPO since 1998. This has opened an interesting possibility for applicants and their representatives, allowing applicants to attend the oral proceedings without having to travel to the premises of the EPO. Regimbeau has been using this possibility routinely for years.
