This article appeared in the January 2012 edition of SCRIP Regulatory Affairs. It discusses the decision of the Court of Justice of the EU (in case C-125/10) to effectively implement Model A of the 2007 RAJ Pharma article that Mike co-authored. It also discusses the possibility of (negative term) SPCs expiring before the patent upon which they are based, but concludes that there are reasons why any concerns on this point are likely to be short-lived.
