Gold standard poll results

In T 437/14 the board of appeal referred questions on disclaimers to the enlarged board. The central question is how the gold standard of G 2/10 is to be squared with the disclaimers that are allowed for accidental anticipations under G 1/03. The case has been discussed in the comments, and various directions were suggested in which the enlarged board could go.

The past two weeks we placed a poll at our blog in which our readers could make their predictions. Polling is now closed and the results are in.

So there is a clear majority that does not expect that G1/03 is any in danger. I'm looking forward to the enlarged board's decision to see how well this poll matches reality.
