Science This is just so wierd. Celltech gets a patent in 1989. Genentech fights it. They reach an agreement in 2001, tell the PTO to vacatre the original patent and issue a new one ... but it's dated 2001 so a patent on some of the underlying tech involved in making protein antibodies is extended from 2006 to 2018. And somehow it's legal. It boggles the mind.
