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

New home for SPCs on UK government portal

The UK Government's GOV.UK portal now has an SPC page, "Apply or extend a supplementary protection certificate", which you can check out here.  This page houses the 32-page guide for applicants which was last revised in November 2013.

The UK Intellectual Property Office still has its own website, but this too will soon be drawn into GOV.UK.
