Circadin appeal now published in the RPC

Back in May The SPC Blog reported briefly that Mr Justice Arnold (Patents Court, England and Wales) dismissed an appeal against the Intellectual Property Office's refusal to grant a supplementary protection certificate for Circadin.

The judge's decision has now been reported in full, together with a helpful headnote, in volume 127, issue 9, of the Reports of Patent, Design and Trade Mark Cases (RPC), published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Intellectual Property Office.
