Under this heading, extracts from patents already granted as well as extracts from utility models will be presented. A patent granted for Germany and Europe will have one legal title, which upon expiry of the opposition period (three months for DE, nine months for EP) becomes legally effective on the day following publication. The utility model also has a provisional legal title from the day of publication. This, however, can bechallenged by an action for cancellation at any time. The extracts contain the title of the invention, a summary and, where indicated, a drawing.
