Productivity vs Quality at the EPO: A rare glimpse behind the curtain that’s worrying

The text discusses the quality issues at the European Patent Office (EPO). It highlights the lack of a clear definition of quality in the EPO's Patent Quality Charter and raises concerns about the priority given to productivity over quality. The text also mentions internal emails from an EPO director that emphasize the importance of production and downplay the importance of quality. The author suggests that it is time to re-adjust priorities and prioritize improving the quality of patents granted by the EPO.
