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

Pharma Law Academy: a Tale of Downing and Discounts ...

The Pharmaceutical Law Academy 2015 is running from 25 to 27 August 2015, the venue being the very pleasant facilities of Downing College, Cambridge, UK (right). While the programme, as the name suggests, runs a good deal more widely than coverage of SPCs, both patent term extensions and marketing authorisations are among the topics addressed in the first day's programme, chaired by Matthieu Guérineau (Director of the Contract Department, Les Laboratoires Servier). Developments concerning the Paediatric Medicines Regulation are dealt with on day two, while the third day investigates -- among other things -- recent SPC case law.
