Public health and the preservation of competitiveness: article now available

Our previous post informed readers of this weblog of the publication of Diane Delcourt's article, "Public health and the preservation of economic competitiveness: the European supplementary protection certificate for medicinal products", in the June 2009 issue of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice (JIPLP, published monthly by Oxford University Press). 

I'm pleased to say that the publishers have kindly agreed to allow readers to access it for free. You can read it in PDF format here.

In my capacity as editor of the Journal. I should like to hear from any readers of this weblog who are considering writing articles or case notes on supplementary protection certificate law and practice (please email me here).
