Practicalities of paediatric extensions -- a recent article

I've just spotted details of a recent article, "Practicalities of paediatric extensions to the Supplementary Protection Certificate", by Leighton Howard (Genericsweb Pty Ltd), which was published in the Journal of Generic Medicines, Volume 6, Number 1, November 2008 , pp. 93-96(4).  I've not seen the article, but the author is described as "a patent information expert with extensive generics experience. He has worked within the professional patent information industry and major generic pharmaceutical firms and now provides consultancy services to the generics industry and government organisations via his company XIP Pty Ltd. He is also the founder of Genericsweb and remains instrumental in maintaining the high quality and accuracy of data contained in Pipeline Patent Intelligence".

The full electronic text is available here at the price of $40 plus tax.
