The Process

If you wish to oppose a patent and hide behind the name of Strawman Limited ['Strawman™'] the process is very simple.

 

The European Patent Attorney (or any other legal representative entitled to act before the European Patent Office) fills out the online Application Form. The EPA (or any other legal representative entitled to act before the European Patent Office) may be your own selected EPA or may be an EPA selected by another person or organisation that acts for you, such as one of your external legal representatives.

 

That's all there is to it!

 

There is no requirement to disclose your name and we do not even want to know if you have good cause to file an opposition.

 

We simply need some basic information on the patent - such as the name of the patent owner and patent number.

 

We will also require confirmation from the EPA (or any other legal representative entitled to act before the European Patent Office) that you are not the owner of the patent that you want opposed. If you are the patent owner then we cannot help you in this particular circumstance.

 

Finally, please read The Agreement. Even though this Agreement is between the Company/Firm of your EPA (or other legal representative entitled to act before the European Patent Office) and Strawman™, you should know the terms of the document.

Flow of Events for Oppositions

In this pictorial representation the European Patent Attorney could equally be any other legal representative entitled to act before the European Patent Office. Likewise, the Party wishing to oppose the European patent may include a team of individuals or companies - such as the combination of a company outside of Europe, its legal advisors and its European Patent Attorney.
