The article “EPA - T 517/14 Assignment of priority rights” discusses the recent decision T 517/14 of a Technical Boards of Appeal of the EPO, in particular the questions of burden of proof and applicable law for proving the assignment of a priority right to a legal successor. These aspects are of potential relevance in cases where the applicant of a patent application differs from the applicant of its priority patent application.
