The Court of Justice of the European Union has delivered its judgement on two "seminal" cases involving pharmaceutical supplementary protection certificates1. The rulings "will have immediate and far-reaching consequences not only in relation to the broad SPC protection that might now be granted by patent offices in Europe, but also in connection with the scope and validity of SPCs already granted,” according to the UK law firm, Potter Clarkson2, which acted for Georgetown University et al in one of the two cases under consideration. The party in the other case was Medeva.
