Editorial: Anonymisation and how I deal with it

Most of the decisions issued by the FPC are at least partly anonymised. In the early days of this Blog, I felt it would be easy to discuss such decisions in equally anonymised form. I was wrong. Anonymisation makes nosy. As a patent attorney I am always keen to understand the technical issues and to know the patents in suit. Sometimes, one does not even get the full picture of the barely legal points of an anonymized decision without understanding the technical background. And finally, it is (too) hard for me to beat around the bush when additional information on the case is readily available that can help to better understand the decision.

I will not enter into investigative journalism. But I decided to share the background information that I have gained during preparation of the posts (like in the post of earlier today). Hope you enjoy.
