German term or phrase: Nebenanspruch
A patent mentions this Nebenanspruch, in addition to Hauptanspruch and Unteransprueche. The latter two are independent- and dependent claims, me thinks. From the context it sounds like a 'second independent claim'. Can anybody shed some light on this?

English translation:independent claim
Explanation:
Schulte, Patentgesetz, Heymanns Taschenkommentare: "Ein Nebenanspruch enthält wie der Hauptanspruch eine unabhängige, selbständige Erfindung."

According to German patent law, a "Nebenanspruch" is an independent claim, defining an independent and distinct invention. In Europe, the distinction is made between "main claim" (Hauptanspruch) and "independent claim" (Nebenanspruch).
