Supreme Court dismisses lawsuit against rule that guarantees a minimum term for patent protection

Such provision foresees a minimum of 10 years of protection for patents, counting from their issuance – which may represent a compensation in view of the current backlog, as the general rule is 20 years of protection from filing date.
