Never Too Late: If you missed The IPKat last week

IPKat was always a teacher's pet
Too busy with the back to school season to follow IPKat last week? It's Never Too Late, and the 112th edition is here with what you missed.

* A triple dose of defeat - three antibiotic patents of Cubist revoked in one trial

Darren Smyth explains the three dimensions of  Hospira v Cubist - three patents revoked in one go.


*  Milan Court of First Instance rejects application for 'blank' blocking order

The Milan Court of First Instance has ruled that a blocking injunction can NOT concern a target website along with any possible top-level domains and other sites (without specifying which) associated with it. Eleonora Rosati brings us the case.

Mylan has recently come under fire for raising the price of the EPIPEN. However, as Mike Mireles points out, this could still be good news for the EPIPEN trade mark. Is any publicity bad publicity?
