La détermination de l'objet du brevet en droit brésilien et européen

Abstract : The thesis makes a balance between the protection scope of the patent and legal certainty. It is based on the legislation and decisions raised in Brazil andEurope. In this course, it first attacks the determination of the patent object during its drafting: firstly the description is subject of a formal and substantive analysis. Then the claims are analyzed in terms of its structures, as well as of its substantive conditions. The “means” notion is defined. The role of the description and the claims in determining the patent object being defined, the second part of the study is devoted to the rules of the interpretation. A Brazilian constitutional analysis is made taking into account the limits established by the Protocol on the Interpretation of Article 69 of the European Patent Convention. Then, we offer internal and external parameters to guide the interpretation of the claims, and determine the scope ofthe patent. The approach aims to ensure to the patentee the good right, as well as legal certainty to third parties.
