EIPR Vol 37, Issue 5 (E.I.P.R. 2015, 37(5), 314-320)
The recent decision in Hospira v Genetch addresses the rules concerning novelty of product-by-process claims, and how different sorts of ‘by-process’ language limit the scope of the claim of the purposes of considering infringement. The judgment provides helpful guidance on the construction and validity of product-by-process claims under UK law.
Penny Gilbert and Sam Carter review the judgment in the recent issue of European Intellectual Property Review.
