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

SPCs a "hot topic" for the BIA

The Annual BioScience Forum of the BioIndustry Association (BIA) takes place on 25 September 2008 in the lovely venue of One Great George Street, London SW1. According to the organisers this event
"combines a cutting-edge agenda with unrivalled networking opportunities. Parallel sessions will focus on

• Translational Medicine
• Intellectual Property Hot Topics
• Business Development Hot Topics
• Talent Management".
The SPC Blog understands that one of the "Intellectual Property Hot Topics" on the BIA's programme will be supplementary protection certificates, which is a good reason for readers of this blog to support this event.

STOP PRESS: Sophie Broster-James (BIA) has emailed to warn us that places at the Forum are limited and that early booking is recommended. You can read the details of the programme and book your place here.
