Roussou, PPD Inc. and Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, Munich, Germany ‘The proposal for the SPC system (rather than simple patent term extension) referred to “the simplicity of the system” and called what was proposed “balanced simple transparent.” None of that proved true and, in my opinion at least, was obviously wrong at the time. Dr Roussou traces its complex history with battles between research based and generic pharma brilliantly. She valiantly attempts the impossible task of not just describing but also explaining the tortured reasoning of the CJEU on a flood of cases – which to some, me included, suggests the Court has no proper understanding of patent law (what is a “protected product”) nor regulatory law (very narrow and precise). She tackles the fuzzy interaction with competition law, the policy implications for pharma research, what’s to be done about the UPC and SPCs and where the system should go next. Not everyone will agree with her (I don’t on a number of points), but all will agree she has produced a valuable and provocative book.’ – Sir Robin Jacob, University College London, UK April 2023 c 288 pp Hardback 978 1 0353 0995 5 £105.00 / $150.00 eBook • Elgaronline Competition Damages Actions in the EU and the UK Law and Practice, 3rd edition David Ashton, IMCO Secretariat, European Parliament, Brussels ‘Witnessing the advancement of private redress for competition infringements in the EU over the past 15 years has been one of the great joys of my professional life.

Fox, New York University, School of Law, US and Damien Gerard, College of Europe and Université catholique de Louvain and Belgian Competition Authority ‘European competition consists of a few provisions that, despite their abstract nature, deeply affect the economy and society as a whole. In the second edition of EU Competition Law, Eleanor Fox and Damien Gerard brilliantly illustrate this impact, not only by presenting the most striking European cases in a comparative law perspective that refers to their main US counter parts, but also by distilling from these cases the essential questions and issues, which students, scholars and practitioners must address when they study or apply EU competition law.’ – Marc van der Woude, President of the EU General Court, Luxembourg Among key features, the book: • integrates law, economics and policies, providing a holistic sense of competition law and its place in the EU system • is unusually concise, given its coverage, while explaining the critical nuances of cases by means of notes and questions • provides a unique comparative perspective by including excerpts of landmark US antitrust cases and numerous other comparative references.
