I was expecting a mention of the present referral to the Enlarged Board of the EPO concerning Computer Implemented Inventions. The president of the EPO has asked the highest precedent-setting review panel of the EPO to state where the standard is for patents which involve computer systems, and there is a window for interested parties to provide observations. The window closes at the end of April.

That's the consultation mentioned in the 2nd last paragraph. If I had an alarm bell, I'd ring it, but the networks of yesteryear aren't so active :-/

One of the hurdles to getting active again is the amount of searching required to get the current status of things.

I'm going to work on an ESP submission for this, but in contrast to most previous work, I'm going to do it in a way that it contributes to a general information resource to help others get active and effective as quickly as possible, in whatever country, for whatever alarm.
