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

Another SPC article ...

"Changes in supplementary protection certificates can mean a difference of millions of euros per month for the value of pharmaceutical products", say Dr Martin Huenges and Dr Dirk B├╝hler of Maiwald. This is how Managing Intellectual Property introduced the authors' article "Patent term extensions", which appeared in that journal's April issue.

The SPC Blog is pleased to have received permission from the journal to make this article available to its readers. You can download it by clicking here.
