A niche blog dedicated to the issues that arise when supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) extend patents beyond their normal life -- and to the respective positions of patent owners, investors, competitors and consumers. The blog also addresses wider issues that may be of interest or use to those involved in the extension of patent rights. You can email The SPC Blog here

Happy New Year -- and news of an event

You may have noticed that The SPC Blog has been in hibernation over the winter break -- but now that its readers are (nearly all) back at their desks, it's time for the blog to roar into action again.

We have news of an upcoming event. Jean-Claude Alexandre Ho (Conference Manager Intellectual Property, FORUM Institut für Management GmbH) has informed The SPC Blog that he is organising an SPC seminar on 29 February 2012 in London. The star attractions at this event are the German authors/practitioners Christopher Brückner and Peter von Czettritz, whose blockbuster book on SPCs was published last year. Christopher and Peter will be presenting their SPC commentary which, Jean-Claude informs us, participants in the seminar will receive. Full details of the seminar programme can be found here.
