- The Enlarged Board of Appeal has recently decided one of the most sensitive cases it has ever had on its hands, but probably
not the last. The referral in the G 2/06 case related to the patentability of human embryonic stem cells (hESC). The main
question was whether inventions pertaining to the hESC should be excluded from patentability in the basis of being contrary
to order public and morality.
