Bucks County Bar Association
The economic incentives provided by a strong intellectual property regime are one of the key drivers of innovation. However, the challenges of rapidly developing technologies which can address the SARS-Cov2 pandemic have led to calls for innovators to make their intellectual property freely available to others in order to aid in the fight against the pandemic, using the “open Covid” pledge. In addition, in the technology sector, there is a strong sense that intellectual property can stifle technological development. We will explore the effects on innovation of the open Covid pledge, compulsory licenses, patent pools, and other regimes for sharing intellectual property.Expand summary
