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.

Bayer CropScience: AG's Opinion published

Yesterday the Advocate General's Opinion in Case C-11/12 Bayer CropScience AG was delivered by Niilo Jääskinen. Frustratingly for this blogger, the Opinion was published in almost every official language of the EU, except English --the only one this blogger can truly understand.

There's a short note on this Opinion on the IPKat weblog, by Paul England (Taylor Wessing). If any readers can add to it, The SPC Blog will be really grateful. Although it's "only" a plant protection product for which the SPC is sought, it's about active substances and safeners and should, at least in theory, be of interest to our pharma readers too.
