Also there's a territoriality aspect. If one makes a medicine in a European country for clinical testing in another European country how does the exemption apply to the manufacture?
In the UK would the clinical testing exemption apply if the testing was abroad. Would this be different for a UK national, classical EP and unitary patent? And would the answer be different if abroad was EP versus non-EP? There is a further territoriality issue not covered - for contributory infringement, currently in the UK law a patent is infringed if both the supply of the essential means, and the infringing use supplied for, are in the UK.
This is a grey area, I think, but I am not convinced that it is compliant with the UPCA that the use has to be in the UK obviously the supply does or there is no act in the UK to complain of. Thus I believe that even for UK national law, supply in the UK of essential means for infringing use in other UPCA countries should probably be considered infringement.
Darryn, Your comment prompts me to bring up topic currently under discussion here in the US concerning our infringement law 35 USC fwhich contains an element of extraterritoriality and a tie back into US suppliers. Our law is directly intended to affect actions by entities outside of the US. Will there be a similar effect between a Unified Patent Court and transnational sourcing?
Thank you anon at - there is no provision in the current UK law, or the UPC Agreement, corresponding to 35 USC fand applicable to inducing infringement anywhere in the world outside the territory of the patent.
The current UK provision which is also somewhat different in scope from 35 USC f requires the supply and the related infringement are in the UK There now follows in two parts a comment received by email from Vicki Salmon to whom thanks! Vicki Salmon comment part 1: Thanks for highlighting the issue of infringement provisions and the UPC again.
This is a really important point and without a lot of political lobbying across Europe, we are going to be left with a mess. All companies have to worry about competitor patents. In fact there are more of those patents to worry about than how to enforce their own patents. Clearance advice is important as your correspondent on the Bolar provision highlighted. Once a court is seized, it will only have to decide what its law is and apply that. Having multiple parallel infringement regimes is bonkers.
Example: There is a pending European application. The application may have been opted out, but that is not a guarantee that it will not be opted back in again at grant.Lecture by Lyn Blackmore.

It was lovely weather, and the tents of the student diggers were scattered over the fields; just as things used to be before almost all archaeology was hurriedly undertaken in advance of development. Over many years Reading University have been re-excavating the Roman city, which was the subject of a monumental campaign by the Society of Antiquaries at the end of the nineteenth century.
This year they are continuing the work on the baths which they started last year. They are uncovering the walls the Antiquaries found and studying the stratigraphy in a way that was not possible over a century ago. Besides the dig itself we saw people working on finds — one woman was extracting with tweezers tiny pieces of charcoal from a heap of what looked like grains of sand.
And we finished the day with tea and cakes in the mediaeval church at the entrance to the site. It appears that building of an 18th structure has mostly removed any medieval evidence. This extensive site is being completely redeveloped for a replacement Marie Foster Home, MOLA Museum of London Archaeology has conducted an Archaeological Evaluation with a number of trenches across the site, with a report to follow.
Service trenches For the past few months a number of service trenches — water, gas, digital cabling etc have been dug around High Barnet. Recently a number of trenches have appeared in the High Street. In the spoil some finds were noted and recovered they consisted of some large animal bone with butchery marks, tobacco-pipe in date and post-medieval pottery see photo.Despite ongoing speculation around Brexit, London has retained its status as a leading property investment destination.
Most international investors look at real estate in London as a second home, an investment or an asset that will serve their children as they pursue professional and educational opportunities. It is set within 42 acres along the River Thames.
Andrew Jones, international sales director at Battersea Power Station, tells Property Weekly why this iconic real estate development has become a magnet for Middle East investors:. What is appealing to investors?
The blended average uplift from launch to the present day is 36 per cent, with some recent sales seeing a 40 per cent uplift. However, we have already seen significant interest from Middle East investors. They recognise that Battersea Power Station is an area of growth, with this development being a catalyst kick-starting wider investment in local infrastructure such as the new tube station and Thames Clippers river bus service, creating a compelling investment case.
Battersea Power Station is set to become one of the most exciting neighbourhoods and a new shopping and leisure destination for Central London. The first phase, Circus West Village, is already open with more than 1, residents living here. The second phase of the development, the iconic Grade II-listed Power Station, will be opening to the public in Phase three, designed by Foster and Partners and Frank Gehry, is expected to complete by the middle ofwhich will house a new high street called Electric Boulevard and a room hotel.

The airport also added that it would need to be assured that the new tower would not affect landing systems. If built, the new tower would stand as the tallest in the City, overshadowing the yet-to-be-built Undershaft. Sign in or Register a new account to join the discussion.

The Financial Crimes.The bridge to Badgerys Creek, which opened on Monday, was built as part of initial earthworks on the Airport site. With initial earthworks almost complete and part of the site officially open, Western Sydney Airport chief executive Graham Millett said the bridge completion marks a milestone. Western Sydney Airport executive general manager Jim Tragotsalos said major earthworks will see around 25 million cubic metres of earth moved to make way for construction of the new international terminal, runway, roads and rail.
Initial earthworks also involved realigning 1. Works on the site—located around 44 kilometres west of the Sydney CBD—will involve hundreds of workers and more than scrapers, excavators, graders, dump trucks and dozers.
A team from the two architectural firms has been selected from more than 40 entrants as the winners of the design contract for the terminal, construction of which is due to start in The winning designs feature landscaped gardens within a giant public plaza, which will offer shopping, dining and entertainment.
Architects were required to have experience designing an airport of similar size and complexity to Western Sydney Airport within the last five years in order to be considered for the design project. In all, 23 million cubic metres of earth will be moved to construct the airport. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the designs for the terminal showed the once-in-a-generation infrastructure project coming to life.
This article originally appeared in ABC News www. National Library of Australia: Russell Roberts.Cranes dip and dive in every direction; to the east, the Shard, an overwhelming ice pick of a skyscraper, dwarfs the Victorian roofs of the surrounding neighbourhood; to the west, the pregnant monolith of One Blackfriars, a storey mixed-used building, looms over the Thames like an alien mothership.
Idle butlers will be forced to play solitaire ad infinitum. The future is a lonely place. Directly across the street, at eye level, was NEO Bankside, three luxury condo towers, their facades crisscrossed in a metric of steel braces. In the nearest tower, no more than feet from where we were standing, rose a series of angular glass living rooms, each meticulously furnished, each empty.
In one, three white chairs stood in silent conference. In another, a telescope pointed reproachfully back at us. The only sign of life was a pair of slippers next to an uncomfortable-looking lime-green chaise lounge. I and my fellow observers were faced with a dilemma. A museum in the 21st century is no longer just a repository of work but an active house of co-creation. Was the view of abandoned luxury also part of the museum?
Did my strange mixture of emotions - the simultaneous curiosity and self-reproach of the voyeur - have a number on the audio tour? Guiltily, I leaned out over the terrace, staring at those slippers. I waited for some kind of performance to begin. I wanted to witness a murder, an affair, a revelation. As more of these luxury towers spring up across the city, transforming neighbourhoods into affluent ghost towns, Londoners are facing difficult questions: What kind of city do we want to live in?
What do we want our streets to look like? What kind of public spaces are valuable to us? Part of the answer to these questions may lie in the entangled story of the Tate Modern and the Bankside neighbourhood it helped spawn. The museum may be the among the best-known examples of the now fashionable transformation of derelict factories into dynamic cultural space.
Since its inception, the Tate Modern has never rested on its laurels, continuing to redefine itself as an institution of outreach, self-reflection and learning. You cannot experience the Tate Modern through Facebook or a tweet; you must show up, with an open mind, surrounded by your fellow visitors. London is perhaps the most international city in the world, but at its heart it has always been a local city, a series of low-slung villages.
The expanded Tate Modern embraces this human scale even if its aspirations are more global than ever. Ask any Londoner about wandering amid the postindustrial squalor of Southwark in the late s and you will be regaled by stories of taking life into your own hands.
Everything changed inwhen the Tate Modern, the London Eye and the endearingly wobbly Millennium Footbridge all opened to wild, instantaneous acclaim. The Tate Modern received 5. For the first time in years, people crossed the Thames and lingered. And lingered. If the contemporary city dweller - faced with skyrocketing property values and the scrubbed corporatisation of High Street - spends much time feeling nostalgic for that grittier, more authentic time of low rents and urban blight, then Southwark offers a particularly long and glorious history to savour.
The Tate Modern and the battle for London’s soul
Because of its location outside the city gates, Southwark functioned as a refuge for weary travellers of all persuasions. During the Industrial Revolution, Southwark became a nucleus of manufacturing because of its ample water, cheap land and cheap labour. Textile plants, breweries, a gasworks and coal and timber yards all led to astonishing levels of pollution. The Bankside Power Station, a giant brick sarcophagus bisected by an ominous chimney-spire, was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and began operations in The power station, across the Thames from St.
The architects have said that the smartest move of their careers was to make the great void of Turbine Hall, the former engine house, even bigger by dropping its floor to the basement level and allowing the visitor to enter down a long ramp.
My first encounter with Turbine Hall came inwhen I was living in London for the year, suffering from that very specific condition that often afflicts Americans if they spend any extended length of time in Britain, whereby everything feels both too familiar and too foreign. I remember the feeling of opening the door to the museum and drifting down that slope, confronted with the yawning mouth of a storey-high, red-rubber-Venus-fly-trap-cum-Victrola-horn.
