<Abstract>
Regarding pharmaceutical patents, there has been an increase in the number of cases in which invalidation trials have been requested and then lawsuits have been filed to ask the Intellectual Property High Court to rescind trial decisions. Among recent litigations, several important ones will be examined in which an inventive step has become the point at issue and a decision has been given by the Court. The impact of these Court decisions will be also discussed.
