Hosted on 13 August 2020 by Chris Goddard, qualified European and UK patent attorney and a Partner at Dehns, this webinar is the second in a two part series on Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs).

SPCs provide a valuable extension to patent protection in Europe for pharmaceutical, veterinary and plant protection products.  

Following on from Chris’ introduction to the SPC system in part 1, the second webinar takes an in depth look at the current “grey areas” of the SPC system.  Chris reviews some recent cases from the CJEU which consider what can be protected by an SPC and how far that protection extends.
