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

Belgian patent attorney firm De Clercq Brants & Partners is organizing a one-day seminar on 14 November 2008 on "Patent Warming, Patent Warning? Patenting Life Sciences and Today’s Challenges in Patent Law and Practice”. Speakers in what is a very stimulating programme include Christophe Ronse (Altius), who is discussing the enforcement of pharmaceutical patents in Belgium and giving an update of SPC case law.

Full details of the seminar programme and registration form are available here. Bookings should be made before 31 October 2008, if possible.
