Spain: Modification of EP translations (2)

In the first post of 2011 we made reference to 3 rulings of the Spanish Supreme Court, granting the appeals filed by Pfizer and Warner-Lambert (here).

The Spanish Supreme Court has granted a fourth appeal, filed again by Pfizer. The case refers to EP0325571.

Arguments used by Spanish Supreme Court in the new ruling are the same previously used: Translation of European Patents can be modified at any time, in order to include claims deleted (for any reason) in the original translation.

A copy if the new ruling (in Spanish) can be obtained here, or using the Spanish Supreme Court database (here) if the link to the ruling doesn't work (as it may happen).
