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

The seminar: details at last!

If you want a good seat, be sure to get there early!
The SPC Blog is delighted to announce SPC Law and Practice 2011, the weblog's third annual seminar. Once again we are fortunate that Olswang LLP has agreed to host the event, which is free, at its London office.

The seminar takes place on Tuesday 21 June 2011. It will run from 1.30pm, when registration commences, till the last drop of wine is sipped at 6pm. This year we hope to avoid any problems with the snow ...

Highlights of the afternoon include presentations on the current state of SPCs in Spain (Javier Huarte, Grau and Angelo) and Belgium (Patricia Cappuyns, Olswang Belgium), the Medeva referral and combination vaccines (Nicole Woods, Rouse) , as well as the Neurim referral and zero scope SPCs (Hugh Goodfellow and Ed Oates, Carpmaels and Ransford).

SPC Blog team member Rob Stephen (Olswang) takes the chair, while his colleague blogmeister Jeremy Phillips will be in attendance, supporting the social side of the programme.

We anticipate the usual lively Q + A session. We hope, as in previous years, to be joined by representatives of various national patent offices.
