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

Date fixed for Seattle ruling

The ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Case C-471/14 Seattle Genetics (on which see earlier SPC Blog post here and JA Kemp post here) is now expected on Tuesday 6 October.

Seattle is a city that is famous for its coffee, always a good way to help wake you up -- but on 6 October the SPC community will need no wake-up call. We'll all be waiting expectantly for the CJEU to make its pronouncement.
