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

Commercial and economic literature on patent term extension

While there is quite a lot of accessible literature on the legal requirements that govern the extension of the duration of the patent monopoly, I've had less luck finding current and readable material on the commercial and economic impact of patent term extension, whether in Europe's SPC zone or outside it.

In order to build up a useful reading list, I am again asking readers of this blog if they can make any recommendations -- whether articles, chapters of books, websites or anything else. All recommendations will of course be shared with readers of The SPC Blog. Please email The SPC Blog here.
