This article first appeared online on 22 April 2014 in the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice. It reviews, analyses and comments upon the decisions in cases C-443/12 (Actavis v Sanofi), C-484/12 (Georgetown University) and C-493/12 (Eli Lilly v HGS). Whilst noting areas that have been clarified and speculating upon strategies that may now represent "best practice" in the light of the decisions, the article also points out the many areas of uncertainty that still remain - or that have been generated by the decisions.
