(3) As inventions for the purposes of the paragraph 1 are not looked in particular:
1. Discoveries as well as scientific theories and mathematical methods;
2. aesthetic form creations;
3. Plans, rules and procedures for mental activities, for plays or for business activities as well as programmes for data-processing systems;
4. the reproduction of information.
(4) Paragraph 3 stands in the way of the patent ability only in this respect when is desired for the called objects or activities as such protection.
