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

This year's SPC Blog seminar: tell us what you want

The annual SPC Blog seminar, which once again will be kindly hosted by Olswang LLP in its London office, has been pencilled in -- but fairly heavily pencilled in -- for Tuesday 2 July, when there is little risk of snow.  We have also compiled a provisional list of topics that seem worthy of careful treatment, ranging from those that are specifically legal and IP-flavoured to those that address more regulatory, competition and policy issues.

Before we set the event in stone, we'd be delighted to hear from you if there are any topics you particularly want to see on the programme.  If you'd like to tell us what you want, just email Rob Stephen here and let him know.
