The CIPA Guide to the Patents Acts brings together the expertise of over 30 highly respected professionals including patent attorneys, solicitors and members of the Bar, all individually selected for their expert knowledge.
Decisions of fundamental significance have issued since publication of the 9th Edition and will be covered in the First Supplement – especially the Court of Justice decision Generics (UK) Ltd and Others v Competition and Markets Authority and the very recent UK Supreme Court decision on Unwired Planet. Also of particular note is that of the UK Supreme Court on classical insufficiency in Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc v Kymab; see also a decision of the Court of Appeal on terms of degree in Anan Kasei v Neo Chemicals. A number of significant further decisions of the Court of Appeal will also be covered including Koninklijke Philips v Asustek on inventive step, Neurim v Generics and TQ Delta v ZyXEL on adequacy of damages and post-trial injunctions and Teva v Gilead and Genentech v Master Data Center on supplementary protection certificates. EPO Appeal Board cases to be covered include G 3/19 Pepper on the patentability of plants and animals and hopefully the currently pending case G1/19 concerning the patentability of inventions concerning computer simulations.
The 9th Edition plus the forthcoming Supplement is an essential tool for any practitioner advising on patents. This must-have guide gives you all the tools you need to protect the rights of your clients.
