G1/09 : Refused but still pending ...

The excellent IP weblog IPKat reported the publication on the EPO register of G1/09. The summary on this weblog tells the story so I will limit this post to the decision itself:

In the case where no appeal is filed, a European patent application which has been refused by a decision of the Examining Division is thereafter pending within the meaning of Rule 25 EPC 1973 (Rule 36(1) EPC) until the expiry of the time limit for filing a notice of appeal.
