|Gordon looking happy|
"This year, under the slightly foreboding title "The Virtue of Justice", the comprehensive review covers all the usual topics, but contains a lengthy analysis of the two Supreme Court cases, Schutz v Werit [on, inter alia, the extent to which repairing or replacing part of a patented product was 'making' it] and Virgin v Zodiac [in which Wragge acted for the successful appellant in a case that people are still arguing over], which have been the centrepiece of the developments in 2013.
As luck would have it, the Court of Appeal answered the call from the Supreme Court to review "stays" in relation to patent cases just in time to get into this review".Gordon is more than happy to receive feedback, criticism or comment on the contents of the review.
