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

Ball and Barnett note now available online

Last week this weblog noted the publication, in issue 2 of volume 10 of the Bio-Science Law Review (published six times a year by Lawtext), of a note by Jonathan Ball and Elizabeth Barnett (Norton Rose), "High Court Upholds UK's Strict Approach on Paediatric Extension to SPCs". This note on E I Du Pont Nemours & Co [2009] EWHC 1112 (Ch), now somewhat overtaken by events (see the comments posted on last week's note) but still of interest, can now be read in full here.

The SPC Blog thanks Nicholas Gingell of Lawtext for making this pdf available.
