We’re organizing a webinar on ‘Impact of COVID-19 on Patent Laws in India and the Trade Related Aspects on Potential Drugs’. The webinar is being organized by Lexstructor with an aim that the IP protection and in particular, the patent regimes must be managed with great care, as well as a willingness to occasionally set aside financial considerations in favor of ethical or moral concerns, especially when it comes to facing unprecedented global health emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic. While IP laws are certainly crucial as they incentivize the development of (often) vital drugs, they are far from perfect, and may very well require further adjustment or reform to meet overarching public interests.
Here are few crucial points which came to rise while assessing the impact of this pandemic:
- Will intellectual property laws in India be a hurdle or opportunity for the affordable access of the COVID-19 potential drugs in India?
- Will the provision for compulsory licensing prevail over the exclusive rights of the patent owner, during the ongoing pandemic?
- Impact of COVID-19 on procedural time limits in patent filings in India
- COVID-19 and the New ‘Health Trade’ Paradigm: Impact on TRIPS Agreement
- Various strategies to be adopted by the IP professionals and patent applicants
