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

More on active implantable medical devices..

Thanks to Alice de Pastors for more information on the fate of SPC applications on Yttrium-90 Glass Microsperes (see our post on 15th April here).

Alice tells us that the Dutch SPC 300226 was granted but then lapsed for non payment of annual fees. In other EU countries there were refusals in Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Sweden, and surrender in France.
