So what do we have for this week? A rather provocative statement from the Hon’ble Mr Justice Floyd of the UK Patents Court (Chancery Division), who, obviously aghast at the sheer obviousness of a patent, remarks at the end of his opinion in Cephalon vs Orchid:
“The Cephalon patents are all invalid for obviousness…… Had they been valid, they would not have been infringed.”
For those interested in a review of this decision and its implications for India, see Rajiv’s thoughtful analysis here.
