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

Free SPC Seminar in London tomorrow!

Daniel Wise of Carpmaels & Ransford has written in to the Blog to say that there are a few last places available for Carpmaels’ annual “SPC Summer Review” event taking place tomorrow, Wednesday, 12th June 2019, from 17:30 (for a 18:00 start) at their offices in central London (One Southampton Row, WC1B 5HA).  The seminar will focus on this year’s CJEU referrals and national court decisions, including the ongoing debates on the meaning of Article 3(a) and the validity of SPCs filed on competitors’ products.  Dr Oliver Werner from the German Patent Office will also be on the panel to discuss the new SPC manufacturing waiver.  Drinks and canapés will be served afterwards.  If you would like to join, please send an email to kirstie.mcclumpha@carpmaels.com, with the subject line “I would like to attend the SPC Summer Review 2019”.  Attendance is free of charge.
